Coex gets new chief

BO Kyung Byun has succeeded Sung Won Hong as president and CEO of Coex Convention and Exhibition Center in Seoul, South Korea.

Byun was selected from a pool of almost sixty candidates, all of whom were assessed on strengths including interpersonal relations and leadership.

Byun has extensive experience in heading several top information and technology corporations in South Korea, including LG-IBM PC and KOLON Global. Since 2011, he has contributed substantially to South Korea’s global convention and exhibition industry and international relations through his role as CEO and president of Seoul Business Agency, one of the country’s leading organisations offering support to small and medium-sized domestic businesses.

His knowledge of these fields is expected to facilitate the further development of Coex as an events hub for global commerce and trade.
