LG chairman Koo Bon-moo dies, aged 73

He turned LG into the global electronics brand we know today

Koo has been seriously ill for some time but retained his role as chairman out of respect for his massive contribution to the business and the fact he was the third of his family to helm the conglomerate. He became chairman in 1995 and has quintupled LG’s revenues to ~US$150bn, over $100bn of which comes from exports.
