HMM appoints new boss

South Korean flagship carrier HMM has appointed a new leader from outside the organisation. Jae-hoon Bae, who previously worked with local supply chain firm Pantos Logistics, steps in to become president and CEO at HMM taking over from CK Yoo. 

Yoo, who had originally been slated to keep the post through to 2021, resigned last month.

An HMM official cited Bae’s sales track record and global management capabilities as reasons for his selection.
