Deon Liebenberg the new Samsung MD

Samsung Electronics today (11 July 2011) announced the appointment of Deon Liebenberg as the Managing Director for Samsung South Africa, effective 1 July 2011.

In this role, Liebenberg will focus on the company’s diverse portfolio and identify opportunities to optimise growth.

“Deon’s appointment is in line with Samsung’s commitment to grow and invest in resources in the African market to achieve our business’s growth objectives,” said George Ferreira, COO of Samsung Africa.

“I am excited to lead Samsung into what can be considered a promising time for the industry,” said Liebenberg.

News broke earlier this year that Liebenberg, who lead BlackBerry into becoming the top smartphone brand in the country, was leaving Research in Motion (RIM) where he was regional director of Sub-Saharan Africa.

Before joining RIM, Liebenberg worked for Motorola’s mobile device division, Vodacom, and Telkom.
