Chris Jeong was recently named the new chief executive officer (CEO) at Doosan Infracore North America. He succeeds Mr. Edward Song, the previous CEO, who was promoted to global sales head of Hyundai Doosan Infracore in Korea.

Doosan Infracor North America has named a new CEO, and his first major assignment is to attend CONEXPO.

Chris Jeong was named CEO, succeeding Edward Song, who was promoted to global sales head of Hyundai Doosan Infracore in Korea.

Jeong most recently served as CEO of Doosan Infracore European Union. He joined Doosan in 2006 as a senior corporate strategy manager after completing his MBA at Carnegie Mellon University. He led strategic activities across various markets before he was promoted to vice president of sales and marketing for emerging markets.  Jeong oversaw sales and marketing for Doosan employee teams in Asia, Oceania, the Commonwealth of Independent States, the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, Brazil, and India.

“I’d like to acknowledge the many accomplishments of Doosan Infracore North America under the leadership of Mr. Edward Song,” Chris said. “Edward was instrumental in getting the new organization structured in 2018 as we recommitted the company to the heavy construction equipment industry in North America.”

Song helped establish two regional parts distribution centers in North America, opened a machine customization plant in Savannah, Ga., and most recently introduced the new Doosan machine monitoring center at the corporate office in Suwanee.

“It has been my pleasure serving you and your customers over the last five years, and I look forward to continuing to support the company and our products in my new role,” Edward says. “Much has transpired since 2018, and I’m pleased by the progress we’ve made working together to enhance the Doosan brand and grow the product line in North America.”

Song praised Jeong’s leadership. “Chris will continue building on the strong foundation we’ve established, particularly the growth during the last five years,” confirms Edward. “His experience and insight will help us continue to move the company forward and expand our footprint in North America.”

Jeong’s first major assignment will be to oversee the Doosan exhibit at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 in Las Vegas from March 14-18.

“I’m excited about our Doosan exhibit planned for the outdoor Festival Grounds,” he says. “We will be demonstrating our latest developments on Concept-X and autonomous equipment with live demonstrations throughout the day. We will have a full lineup of our current products as well as new additions to the lineup.”
