Samsung has fired a number of employees after an internal investigation into the US marketing department, The Wall Street Journal reports.
According to three sources, the company investigated whether employees of the marketing department were dealing incorrectly with business partners, such as media companies and advertisers.
It is not clear which rules have been violated, but a number of people would have been fired. That would have happened on March 15. It is not known how many employees are involved.
Samsung did not want to specify whether an investigation has taken place. In a statement to The Wall Street Journal, the company said it had “made some organizational changes” at the department.
The South Korean telephone manufacturer said goodbye to American marketing boss Marc Mathieus last week who, according to a spokesperson, would have left “to pursue opportunities outside the company”. No successor has yet been appointed.
