Lau exits Samsung

The national sales manager for Samsung's IT division in New Zealand, Jeff Lau, will exit the company at the end of the month.

Lau says he gave lengthy prior notice of his departure, and expects a smooth transition with his replacement, which he says is being finalised.

His departure closely follows the appointment of Francis File as Samsung's senior sales manager for consumer electronics, IT and appliances.

File has commenced his role, and reports to Samsung's New Zealand general manager Daeki Min. Samsung says his role will involve building the vendor's existing relationships with distribution and trade partners.

File has 23 years' experience in marketing and retail, and joins Samsung after 12 years with Philips.
