Michel to boost LG in Germany and Austria


Ex-Motorola UK chief Jim Michel has been tasked with boosting LG’s sales through T-Mobile in Germany and Austria.

Michel said he would be targeting these markets, among nine European countries, to boost LG’s market share in his new role as LG global account manager for T-Mobile.

Michel’s new role will be based in Slough and will involve frequent travel to T-Mobile headquarters in Germany.

Said Michel: “I’ll be working closely with the T-Mobile country heads in these markets and looking to extend LG’s portfolio, especially in Germany and Austria.

“John Barton has done a fantastic job building LG’s market share in the UK and we need to build it up in other countries. I’ll be liasing closely with T-Mobile and building a strategy with them.”

Michel left Motorola in November.
