Chris Jeong most recently served as CEO for 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, Commonwealth of Independent States, Middle East, Africa, Latin America, Brazil and India.

Former CEO Edward Song led Doosan Infracore North America to success during his time as CEO. Among his many accomplishments were establishing two regional parts distribution centers in North America, opening the machine customization plant in Savannah, Georgia, and most recently introducing the new Doosan machine monitoring center at the corporate office in Suwanee.

Edward is excited for his successor and what the future holds for Doosan Infracore North America and its dealers and customers.

“Chris will continue building on the strong foundation we’ve established, particularly the growth during the last five years,” Song said. “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.

“I’m excited about our Doosan exhibit planned for the outdoor Festival Grounds,” he said. “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.”
