On July-September 2011 business period, as reported by Data Strategy Analytics, Samsung has been reported managed to ship more than 20 millions smartphone, put Samsung in market leader, beat Apple & Nokia in mobile tech war zone marketplace. Android popularity combined with Samsung’s willpower & tenacity to produce many kind of smartphone from simple, middle until high spec was believed behind Samsung’s success step. And also wrote this man’s name with bold, Samsung CEO, Mr. Yoon Woo Lee, Man behind Samsung’s success.
Mostly people always remembered of Omar Khan whom is former Samsung’s CTO & has been recognized as man behind success of Galaxy line smartphone & Galaxy Tab then He goes to Citigroup. But remember, long time before Samsung has found guy like Omar Khan, Yoon Woo Lee as I regard Man behind Samsung’s success, already change paradigm of Samsung Corporate in local hero to be one of biggest global electronic industry, almost in much sector that could impact the way people lives.
Samsung now has strong business backbone in sectors like : TV/Audio Video ; Camera/Camcorder ; Home Appliances ; Mobile Devices ; Computers/Printers ; Samsung Apps ; Semi Conductor ; LCD Panel ; Optic Fiber. But If I do to remember few years ago, Samsung brand name only popped up in my head & left not more than any view of refrigerators ; air conditioning ; television ; movie & music players. With also goes like, Ooo Samsung is Korea’s big company, Samsung is Korean made, not globally made. While ago, Samsung was still on Korean brand not global brand like Sony’s case that was Japan’s brand long time ago but Sony already goes global brand maybe more than a decade. So, what already Man behind Samsung’s success do to change that?
Mr. Yoon-Woo Lee was born in April 26th, 1946, graduated with B.S.E.E College of Engineering Degree from Seoul National University. In 1968, He starts His career in display device business then soon goes to semiconductor department in 1996. He’s been Samsung member board of director since 1988, got promoted to be Vice Chairman of Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology in 2004. His career goes up as promoted again to be Samsung Chief Technology Officer in 2005 then in 2008, Mr. Yoon Woo Lee serves as Vice Chairman & CEO Samsung Electronics globally. This Man behind Samsung’s success really struggling under tread of a professional career.
I could consider Mr. Yoon Woo Lee in same holder position like Steve Jobs role in Samsung as They come from technical background. Mr. Lee’s leadership and in-depth technology expertise as Man behind Samsung’s success have helped build Samsung into one of world’s largest electronics company. He also has won many award being successful science business-man & chairman. He’s on 16th position as Most Powerful People in Wireless below 15th, Mike Lazaridis & Jim Balsillie, co Founder & co CEO Research in Motion Blackberry. What a great man is He, huh? Great quality of Man behind Samsung’s success.
Choosing Him as rank 16th is quite of topics that have been very clear in what makes Him such a powerful business man. Mr. Yoon-Woo Lee is director, powerful cause & no indisputable Man behind Samsung’s success. Mr. Yoon Woo Lee empowered Samsung directly & gradually rise to the top from local brand consumer electronics industry to be like this now. Samsung capability also reach screens, chipsets and components for some of major handset makers brand like HTC. Samsung also sells Flash memory to the likes of Apple and others. This Man behind Samsung’s success already reshape Samsung as giant electronics manufacturer that is difficult to surpass in modern business era.
In some major cases, We ever saw heated business debate while Samsung w/ Google vs. Apple are quarreling to fight in mobile phone patent lawsuit but that’s not stopping Samsung successful step in one of market leader in IT mobile business in smartphone, tablet PC, and now in Samsung notebook series 9. Samsung really needs to give utmost respect due to Mr. Yoon Woo Lee, Man behind Samsung’s success.
