LG has appointed Andrew Coughlin as its new UK and Ireland head of mobile. He replaces Warren Lewis, who left the company in February after just five months in the job.

Prior to joining Samsung, he held a managerial position within Carphone Warehouse’s wholesale team for eight years, where he dealt with customers in Hong Kong, selling end of life stock and returns.

Coughlin said: “I’m very excited to be joining LGE UK as head of mobile and looking forward to working with the team to continue re-energising the LG Mobile brand in the UK and Ireland.

“I bring with me a long career in the mobile industry and experience that I’m confident will support LG’s strong proposition in the smartphone market.”
