  • Samsung SDS Pres. Named Korea's Communication Minister
  • December 24, 1998 (SEOUL) -- Namgoong Suek, president of Samsung SDS Co., Ltd., was named to serve as Korea's new minister of information and communication.
    Korean President Kim Dae-jung appointed Namgoong to the post on a motion by Prime Minister Kim Jong-phil, a government spokesman said.

    Namgoong, 60, an ex-president of Korea PC Communication, has served as the chief of Samsung's systems integration unit since 1993.

    He will replace Bae Soon-hoon, who resigned last week following his controversial remarks against the government-backed business swap between Samsung Motors Inc. and Daewoo Electronics Co. Bae had been president of Daewoo Electronics until he was appointed to the post of information and communication minister under the current administration.
