EVG appoints general manager of Korean subsidiary

Supplier of wafer bonding and lithography equipment EV Group (EVG) of St. Florian, Austria has appointed Dr Weonsik Yang as general manager of EV Group Korea Ltd, an EVG subsidiary which opened in June this year in Seoul. Yang succeeds Bioh Kim, acting general manager, who will refocus his role as business development manager at EVG North America.

Leading EVG's strategic efforts in the Korean region, Yang will focus on strengthening the firm’s regional customer sales, service and support efforts, as well as expanding upon its existing R&D partnerships.

Hermann Waltl, EVG's senior vice president of sales, said: "Our aim is to provide our customers with the best support possible, and we are taking deep strides to expand upon our commitment to the Korean market following the recent opening of our own subsidiary. As such, we are excited to welcome Dr. Yang to expand our subsidiary's reach and spearhead our customer and R&D efforts in this burgeoning market. His extensive capital equipment experience, both strategic and technical in nature, complements our needs, making him a vital asset to our Korean operations."

Yang has over 15 years experience of the capital equipment sector. Prior to joining EVG, he worked in various roles at Dongbu HiTek Co Ltd, including within its fab process engineering, technology planning, manufacturing technology, and production support teams. Yang started his career as a team lead at Iljin, where he managed its new business development team. He earned his bachelor's degree in metallurgical engineering at Seoul National University, and obtained his master's and doctorate degrees in the field from Michigan Technological University.

EV Group Korea Ltd serves as a direct-to-customer site for sales, service and support, supplanting EVG's sales and distribution partnership model to adapt to the growing customer demands for localized efforts.
