LG Electronics announced changes to the company’s structure, effective Jan. 1, 2009. The company has re-aligned its four traditional business units – Digital Appliance (DA), Digital Display (DD), Digital Media (DM), and Mobile Communications (MC) – into a new structure that include Mobile Communications and four completely new units – Home Entertainment (HE), Home Appliance (HA), Air-Conditioning (AC), and Business Solutions (BS).

HE will be the business unit focusing on technology related to televisions, PDP modules, and audio-video products. The company will be formed from units of both Digital Display and Digital Media. Simon Kang, formerly executive vice president and CEO of LG Digital Display, was appointed president and CEO of the newly created company.

The HA unit will focus on refrigerators, washing machines, kitchenware, and other domestic appliances. Young Ha Lee, formerly president of CEO of LG Digital Appliances, will run LG Home Appliances.
