Chris Jeong is the new chief executive officer at Doosan Infracore North America. He succeeds Edward Song, who was promoted to global sales head of Hyundai Doosan Infracore in Korea.
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 has overseen sales and marketing for Doosan employee teams in Asia, Oceania, Commonwealth of Independent States, the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, Brazil and India.
“I’d like to acknowledge the many accomplishments of Doosan Infracore North America under the leadership of Mr. Edward Song,” said Jeong. “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.”
Under Song’s leadership, Doosan Infracore North America established two regional parts distribution centres in North America, opened a machine customization plant in Savannah, Ga., and most recently introduced the new Doosan machine monitoring centre at the company’s corporate office in Suwanee, Ga.
“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,” stated Song. “Chris will continue building on the strong foundation we’ve established, particularly the growth during the last five years.”
Jeong will be overseeing the Doosan exhibit at the upcoming CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 show in Las Vegas, where the company will be demonstrating the latest developments in its Concept-X and autonomous equipment.
