Tom Brown
"Homeplus: Tesco’s Success Story on Entering the Korean Market"

Tom Brown is Site Research Director at Homeplus Korea, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tesco of the UK.

* * *

Tesco’s entry into the Korean market contains valuable lessons for anyone doing or wishing to do business in Korea. While other foreign brands like Wal-Mart and Carrefour have failed, Tesco’s Korean brand, Homeplus, is moving from strength to strength as it closes the gap with the market leader, E-mart.

This interview covers many fascinating aspects of the Homeplus story in Korea. From its early partnership with Samsung, to an extraordinary level of office culture localization, as well as matching uniqueness of the Korean consumer market, Tesco and Homeplus have achieved an amazing success.

Tom Brown has been with Tesco in Asia during this time, both in Korea and China, leading the company’s efforts to locate new stores. His insider perspective leaves us with many valuable insights about business in Korea (and even a little about business in China!).

This interview is a “must-listen” for anyone with an interest in business in Korea.

49:08 minutes (22.5 MB)


Produced bySteven Bammel and hosted by Tom Tucker.

 

July 13, 2011The Korea Business Interview Series

Yong Wook Jun, Ph.D.
"Business Lessons in Hallyu & Globalization at Solbridge School of Business in Daejeon"

Yong Wook Jun, Ph.D. is Dean of Solbridge School of Business at Woosung University in Daejeon, Korea, as well as Director and Advisor to many Korean corporations.

* * *

Korea has been on a roll lately, and the Hallyu phenomenon that’s swept Asia, and is now making an impact in the West too, is a visible and powerful symbol of this success. In many ways, Korea has thrived on niche strategies, and no other educational institution in Korea more exemplifies both a niche strategy and efforts to maximize the benefits of Hallyu than Woosung University and Solbridge International School of Business.

Yong Wook Jun, also known as Woody Jun, is the Vice President of Woosung University and Dean of SolBridge International School of Business in Daejeon, Korea. Dean Jun earned his bachelor’s degree at Seoul National University, his master’s at the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University in Illinois, and a Ph.D. from the Sloan School of Management at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, MIT.

He was on the faculty of Chung-Ang University in Seoul for 22 years before taking his current position as Dean of SolBridge last year in 2010. Dean Jun has also served on the board of directors for many leading Korean multinational companies, including Hynix, Samsung Electronics, Hyundai Motors, and SK Telecom.

In this interview, Dean Jun shares valuable insights about business and education strategy in Korea from the perspective of Solbridge.

Peter Bartholomew 
"Promoting the Value of High-Tech Shipbuilding and Traditional Architecture in Korea"

Peter Bartholomew is Vice President of IRC, Ltd. in Seoul, and supporter of efforts to preserve Korean hanok and other historical assets.

* * *

There are few people more qualified to discuss the Korean economic miracle than Peter Bartholomew. Having arrived as a Peace Corps volunteer, he has remained in Korea almost continuously since 1968. Peter worked in a Korean company for almost a decade in the 1970s, and for the last 28 years, he has run IRC, Ltd. in Seoul, specializing in the shipbuilding and construction sectors.

In this interview, Peter shares deep insights about Korean business, including techniques for negotiating with Koreans, as well as about efforts to preserve traditional hanok homes, an area on which he is particularly passionate. He believes that a modern Korea should be compatible with maintaining the natural and historical assets of the past.
