LG Electronics Australia appoints national marketing director

Former Samsung marketer, Gemma Lemieux, gets the nod

LG Electronics Australia has appointed Gemma Lemieux as its marketing director. 

Lemieux previously held senior regional roles with Panasonic and Samsung and joins LG from lifestyle and athletics apparel company, Zuu, where she was the founder and director. 

Her past roles include group product manager at Orange Telecommunications, head of marketing, corporate and telecommunications at Samsung Australia, director of marketing communications at Panasonic Australia, and director of marketing APAC for Navico APAC.

In her new role she will oversee all LG marketing and brand activity. LG Electronics Australia human resource director, Amanda Jackson, said Lemieux has extensive industry experience, a passion for brand building and deep understanding of the markets in which we operate. 

"She is a valued addition to the LG team during this important period for our business,” she said.

The news follows Angus Jones stepping down as CMO and general manager of marketing of LG Australia late last year.

Jones had been in the role for over four years. Prior to LG, Jones held various marketing positions at Dell, also for just over four years. He also spent 11 years with Hewlett-Packard.

Lemieux will begin the new role later this month.

Non-linear transformation: The internal struggle

Let’s face it, transformation is messy. Every business is different, with a set of specific challenges based on a mixture of external (the market, competitors, regulation) and internal factors (technology, people and process investments over time).

Building a human-curated brand

If the FANG (Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Google) sector and their measured worth are the final argument for the successful 21st Century model, then they are beyond reproach. Fine-tuning masses of algorithms to reduce human touchpoints and deliver wild returns to investors—all with workforces infinitesimally small compared to the giants of the 20th Century—has been proven out.
