Gokhale said he was proud of the accomplishments that he and his team had achieved.
“When I joined Samsung, my objective was to transform the Mobile Division into a more customer-centric business. We have overhauled the way we interact with our consumers; from our service and after-sales support, to marketing communication, and retail execution.
“It has been a privilege for me to lead this business, which is at the forefront of new technologies such as virtual reality and fintech. I’m proud to have launched these innovations in Australia and driving strategies to ensure these products and services meet the needs of businesses and consumers in this country.
“The Galaxy S7 was the most successful launch of any Samsung Galaxy smartphone in Australia, achieving our highest market share. On this note, I feel that I have achieved the goals that I set when I accepted the position at Samsung Australia.
“I leave the business having established an excellent team and solidifying commercial relationships, which I believe will help to drive the next stage of Samsung’s growth in Australia. I look forward to supporting the team in the lead-up to my departure.”
