With LG Group’s launch of a holding company and removal of cross-holdings between its affiliated companies, a corporate governance structure has been created where the holding company takes full charge of investments while LG Innotek devotes itself to enhancing corporate value and its own business without the added burden of handling investments. This has laid the foundation for boosting “managerial transparency” at LG Innotek. Through a responsible management system led by CEO Park, Jong Seok and the Board of Directors, LG Innotek is strengthening its business competitiveness at home and abroad, ultimately to realize maximum corporate and shareholder value.
LG Innotek’s Board of Directors (BOD) which includes four outside directors, maintains independence from its major shareholders and management. Equipped with substantial expert knowledge and experience in respective areas the outside directors monitor and check LG Innotek’s management, and work as objective advisors, providing honest opinions. BOD (Board of Directors) meetings are held regularly and scheduled to enable participation of all BOD members. Directors thoroughly examine materials provided by LG Innotek before attending BOD meetings. By doing so, they proactively express views, conduct objective evaluations, and review important management agenda, internal transactions between affiliates and business decisions made by the management.
To secure complete independence from the company’s major shareholders and management, the Audit Committee consists of three outside directors. As a trustworthy supervisory entity, Audit Committee examines corporate accounting to ensure transparency, compliance with the accounting laws, and managerial fairness. In addition, it is responsible for approving the appointment of external auditors based on factors such as business expertise, independence, reputation, service capabilities, ability to perform international business affairs, and possible conflicts of interests with the company.
