Brett Emerson, who has been appointed Managing Director of Hankook Tyre U.K., has over 30 years of experience in the UK tyre industry. Emerson, who has been working as Hankook’s UK Sales Director for the past five years, takes over from Jong Jin Park who has relocated to the company’s American headquarters to assume a new role.
Since joining the company, Emerson has implemented ambitious growth plans and the plans will be continued to achieve further growth in the market, Hankook said.
“We are convinced that with Emerson we have made the best choice for this position,” says Tony Lee, Vice President Marketing & Sales at Hankook Tire Europe. “With 30 years of working experience in the UK Tyre industry and his already existing attachment to Hankook, we found someone whose knowledge we trust and whose experience we will undoubtedly benefit from.”
Commenting on his new appointment, Emerson says: “For me it is a privilege and an honour to become Managing Director of Hankook Tyre UK. We have developed a really strong and committed team at Hankook UK, and this, linked with having a fantastic portfolio of industry leading products, growing brand awareness, a deceptively large share of European OE fitments, and some great business relations and partnerships with our Customers gives us an amazing opportunity in the coming years. I look forward to building on our recent success in 2019 and beyond.”
