Michael Ahn, senior advisor and former corporate president, LG Electronics, will discuss the importance of leadership in creating a premium brand, and the role that employees play in building and maintaining a premium brand in the consumer's mind. Mr. Ahn will share his experience from LG Electronics, where he transformed an unknown brand into a well-known, high-quality brand within 5 years.

Speaker Biography:
Prior to becoming a senior advisor at LG Electronics USA in 2010, Mr. Ahn served as the president and chief executive officer of LG Electronics, North America, the regional headquarters of LG Electronics, Inc. During that time, he successfully realigned LG’s North American operations from three divided groups into one cohesive structure. Under his leadership the company’s revenues more than doubled: from $5.6 billion to $13 billion in six years. After 34 years of service at LG, Mr. Ahn now provides strategic counsel to the organization, and advises small- to medium-sized companies as well as not-for-profit organizations. He holds a bachelors in Business Administration from Korea University, and has received an Honorary Doctorate degree from Nyack College in New York.
