LG has appointed former Vodafone head of partner marketing Alex Windle as its new UK and Ireland head of marketing for mobile.

Windle replaces Jeremy Newing, who exited the company late last year. He will report LG Electronics UK and Ireland marketing director Paul Trueman and will also work closely with LG Mobile UK general manager Jim Michel.

Windle spent eight years at Vodafone. His most recent role was head of partner marketing, which he held for a year, and was accountable for all strategic marketing through, to and with Vodafone’s indirect channel partners in the UK.

He also held a number of other positions at the operator, including head of product, head of mobile and email apps, senior channel marketing programmes manager, service and brand manager, customer propositions manager and CRM campaigns manager.

Newing left LG as part of a reshuffle at the company that later saw former Motorola UK and Ireland general manager Jim Michel replace outgoing sales and marketing director John Barton. Michel was later promoted to the position of LG Mobile general manager.
