Chris Jeong has been named the new chief executive officer (CEO) at Doosan Infracore North America.
He succeeds Edward Song, who was promoted to global sales head of Hyundai Doosan Infracore in Korea.
“I’d like to acknowledge the many accomplishments of Doosan Infracore North America under the leadership of Edward Song,” Jeong says. “Edward was instrumental in getting the new organization structured in 2018 as we recommitted the company to the heavy construction equipment industry in North America.”
Jeong most recently served as CEO for Doosan Infracore European Union. He joined Doosan in 2006 as a senior corporate strategy manager after completing his MBA at Carnegie Mellon University. He led strategic activities across various markets before he was promoted to vice president of sales and marketing for emerging markets.
Jeong oversaw sales and marketing for Doosan employee teams in Asia, Oceania, Commonwealth of Independent States, Middle East, Africa, Latin America, Brazil and India.
Song led Doosan Infracore North America to success during his time as CEO. Among his many accomplishments were establishing two regional parts distribution centres in North America, opening the machine customization plant in Savannah, Ga, and most recently introducing the new Doosan machine monitoring center at the corporate office in Suwanee.
“It has been my pleasure serving you and your customers over the last five years, and I look forward to continuing to support the company and our products in my new role,” Song says. “Much has transpired since 2018, and I’m pleased by the progress we’ve made working together to enhance the Doosan brand and grow the product line in North America.
“Chris will continue building on the strong foundation we’ve established, particularly the growth during the last five years,” continues Song. “His experience and insight will help us continue to move the company forward and expand our footprint in North America.”
Jeong’s first major assignment will be to oversee the Doosan exhibit at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 in Las Vegas, Nev.
“I’m excited about our Doosan exhibit planned for the outdoor Festival Grounds,” he says. “We will be demonstrating our latest developments on Concept-X and autonomous equipment with live demonstrations throughout the day. We will have a full lineup of our current products as well as new additions to the lineup.”
