Kumho Group names chair’s daughter as an executive

July 04,2018
Kumho Asiana Group announced Tuesday that the 40-year-old daughter of group Chairman Park Sam-koo has been appointed as an executive of Kumho Resort.

The appointment makes Park Sae-jin the senior vice president of the resort affiliate, which operates seven resorts in Korea and China, though it is the first job given to her at the company.

As Park had been a full-time housewife before the appointment, according to multiple media reports, questions will likely be raised over whether she is qualified for the role.

According to Kumho, Park had worked for ANA Hotel Tokyo from 2002 until 2005.

Chairman Park has one elder son and one daughter.
