Dec 02,2017
Kim Jong-ho was officially appointed as the president and CEO of financially troubled Kumho Tire.

The tiremaker announced through a statement that Kim was picked as the chief executive of the company in an extraordinary shareholders meeting that took place on Friday.

Kim was tapped by creditors of the debt-ridden tire company as its chief executive in October after Park Sam-koo, the chairman of Kumho Asiana Group, who was delegated with the management of Kumho Tire, stepped down from the post to take responsibility for the company’s poor performance.
