Hanwha Techwin appoints Soon-Hong Ahn to president’s role

Soon-Hong Ahn has been appointed president of Hanwha Techwin. Previously head of sales and marketing and former president of Hanwha Techwin America, Ahn’s extensive knowledge of the video surveillance industry and expertise in global marketing have been significant factors in the company’s high growth achievements in a competitive marketplace. In turn, this has laid the groundwork for expanding the business globally.

Commenting on his appointment, Ahn explained: “Looking back over the past year, we have laid a solid foundation for qualitative growth by demonstrating an impressive performance in three areas, namely sales growth, efficiency and investment in our future. This has been achieved with the ongoing support and encouragement of the Hanwha Group. An excellent example of this has been the opening of our new facility in Vietnam which has enabled us to strengthen our global competitiveness by improving manufacturing efficiency.”

Elaborating on that last point, Ahn noted: “Our plan for the immediate future is to maintain stable growth hinged on qualitative growth strategies, while at the same time incorporating core technologies based on mega trends, such as the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence and 5G, into our video surveillance solutions and creating new business opportunities for system integrators and business partners.”
