The outgoing Park has been the managing director and president of South West Asia operations for the past six years.

The publication further reveals that Samsung India deputy managing director Ravinder Zutshi too is retiring from the company later this month. This is in line with the report, which surfaced online back in October when Chief Finance Officer Sunil Goel left the company after 17 long years.

Samsung’s smartphone business hasn’t had the best of years, and the company has been looking at making wholesale changes. With increased competition from local as well as international rivals, Samsung recently recorded a 60 percent drop in quarterly net profit compared to the year before. While earlier reports suggested that mobile chief JK Shin would lose his CEO position, he however survived the management shuffle.

Samsung’s press release follows.
