SK Telecom has appointed Park Jung-ho as its new CEO, as the South Korean operator steams ahead into the 5G age.
Park replaces Dong-Hyun Jang as CEO of SK Telecom (Nasdaq: SKM) who took on the position in March 2015. It is something of a lateral move for the two men. Jang is taking Park's old position as CEO of SK Holding C&C.

SKT says in a statement that "Park is determined to achieve growth and innovation through a new level of ICT convergence by combining mobile telecommunications, the Internet of Things, media, platform and semiconductor."
It has just announced trials with Ericsson AB (Nasdaq: ERIC) and Qualcomm Inc. (Nasdaq: QCOM) on the 5G New Radio (NR) specification for the second half of 2017. (See Qualcomm, Ericsson, SKT Team on 5G NG Trials.)
