LG’s Warren Lewis quits as UK head of mobile


Lewis to depart just five months into the job, as manufacturer says it has “a plan in place that will align with our priorities for 2012”

LG UK head of mobile Warren Lewis is leaving the business after just five months in the lead job. The news comes just two weeks before LG’s attendance at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Lewis (pictured) was appointed to the role last September and replaced Jim Michel, who left the business the previous month to become UK and Ireland managing director of hardware distributor Brightstar.

LG has so far not announced a replacement for Lewis but said in a statement: “We can confirm that Warren Lewis will be leaving LG and thank him for his notable contribution to the business. We have a plan in place that will align with our priorities for 2012 and will confirm this in due course.”

Lewis joined LG Electronics in November 2007 as sales director, before becoming the company’s commercial director just over three years later in January 2011.


  1. Some companies never learn, they took a respected sales team and introduced a Sales Director in Warren Lewis with no mobile, channel, partner or product experience, unlike Jim Michel, what did they expect to happen?
    Hopefully no other manufacturer will lose credibility by making the same mistake.

    Experience matters in our industry, no matter what level your at.
