Apple looks to be galvanising its operations in Korea after it has reported that the Cupertino-based company has appointed Dominique Oh, former Vice President of LG’s Smartphone Business, as its new general manager in Korea.

Oh, who still lists LG as his current employer on LinkedIn, was appointed as the new head of Apple’s Korean unit early Wednesday according an industry source, who wished to remain anonymous.

The new Apple general manager’s previous roles saw him oversee LG”s Android and Windows Phone 7 product portfolios, as well as establishing relationships with global operators and potential partners. At both JV Alcatel-Thomson and Thale, Oh helped deliver data transmission technology for telecoms companies.

The appointment will see Dominique Oh replace Andrew Sedgwick, who led Apple’s operations in Korea for over a decade.
