Meeting with Mr. Cho, CFO of Hyundai Heavy Industry
Mr. Cho, CFO of Hyundai Heavy Industries, located in South Korea, explains the relationship between his group and Societe Generale. But above all the synergies created by this long-term partnership based on real trust between the shipbuilding group and the Bank.
I started business relationship with Societe Generale in 2013 when I was, at that time, the CFO of Hyundai Oilbank (a key subsidiary of HHI group). Since then, the business between our 2 groups did expand to the overseas activities of Hunday Oilbank, helping to build up a strong credibility between our two parties. When I was transferred to HHI (Shipbuilding industry) in 2014 to take my current CFO role, my counterpart in Societe Generale did continue to engage me to see how Societe Generale could support our company in the difficult time our industry is facing. Always looking for solutions, Societe Generale has been at all times listening to our needs and do its best to support us, as only a relationship driven bank can do. I understand one of Societe Generale motto is to be a long-term relationship bank and I am looking forward to it with our Group.
Societe Generale teams have a strong expertise and can therefore provide adequate services to my company. Also, from my various interactions with the Societe Generale Korea team, I can feel Societe Generale strong culture and team spirit at work. Societe Generale is definitely a relationship and commited-driven bank, and therefore differentiates itself from its competitors. I trust this will allow Societe Generale Korea to even further develop its activities in the Korean market.
