Orlando, Fla. – Bob Perry, sales VP for consumer electronics at LG Electronics, has left the company to “pursue other interests,” the company reported Wednesday.
The announcement was made during the press conference on LG’s new products at its annual dealer meeting, being held here. The news was a surprise as TWICE staffers at the show had heard Perry was at the hotel and told others he would be talk with the media at the event.
No replacement for Perry was named and LG made no further comment. On Thursday Perry called TWICE to say he “resigned abruptly just before the line show when I became aware of some internal activities that made me uncomfortable. I tried to resolve them, but couldn’t and I resigned immediately.”
Perry was unavailable for comment and LG did not elaborate on the news at this time. Calls to Perry’s cellphone had a message from him referring customers to LG. He left his e-mail address for personal messages.
Perry joined LG in December 2003 as sales VP after a six-year stint with Mitsubishi, where he was sales and marketing VP and later government and industry affairs VP.
