Kia Canada has announced the appointment of Min Kun (M.K.) Kim as its new president and CEO.

Mr. Kim, who brings more than 28 years of experience to the position, is no stranger to Canada. He previously served as deputy general manager at Hyundai Canada from 1995 to 2000.

He also has held a variety of other positions within both the Kia and Hyundai organizations, including president and CEO for Kia Motors Australia from 2010 and president for the Middle East and Africa Region in 2012.

Most recently, he was chief executive coordinator for Kia Motors America in Irvine California.

"I am excited to return to Canada for the second time in my career while also having the opportunity to lead Kia Canada in this new capacity," said Kim. "Kia Canada has made tremendous gains in the Canadian market over the last 15 years and I am looking forward to assisting in further growth as we progress into the future."
