Kia Motors announces executive-level appointments at US manufacturing plant and headquarters

With 2014 marking Kia Motors' 20th anniversary in the US, Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia (KMMG) and Kia Motors America (KMA) has announced several promotions to support the growing needs of both organizations as the brand's product portfolio, customer
base and units in operation continue to expand.

At KMMG, Randy Jackson has been named Senior Vice-President, HR and Administration, and Stuart Countess has been elevated to Vice-President, Quality Sub-Division. At KMA, Tim Chaney has been promoted to Vice-President of Marketing Communications, and Orth Hedrick is now Vice-President, Product Planning.

"Following a year which saw the arrival of seven all new or significantly redesigned vehicles - including updated versions of the US-built* Optima and Sorento - Randy, Stuart, Tim and Orth have and will continue to play important roles in the growth and maturation of the Kia brand and their promotions are well-deserved," said Byung Mo Ahn, Group President and CEO of KMA and KMMG.

In addition to the executive-level appointments, KMMG's James Watson also received a promotion to Director, Production Sub-Division. Watson joined KMMG in 2008 and is now responsible for overseeing vehicle production and plant maintenance.
