Jeon has been serving as acting CEO for Kumho Tire since December following the resignation of former CEO Kim Jong-ho.

Jeon joined Kumho Tire in 1984 and headed the tire manufacturer’s Gokseong and Gwangju plants. He also has experience of managing the company’s tire production in China.

Meanwhile, Kumho Tire said in a regulatory filing Thursday its net losses reached 205.5 billion won (US$182 million) for the whole of 2018, up significantly from 111.8 billion won losses in 2017.

Its operating loss narrowed to 89.9 billion won in 2018 from 157.1 billion won a year earlier. Sales fell 11.1 percent on-year to 2.55 trillion won.
