Biography

The eldest son of Jeongwon Park, the chairman of Doosan Corporation, Seo-Won is the heir to the Korea-based holding company and in 2015 was promoted up the ranks to become a successor of the country’s 14th largest business conglomerate.

Park was appointed to the role of senior vice president in November 2015, where he has been responsible for the marketing and strategy of Doosan’s duty-free operations. He has been credited with Doosan’s venture back into retail: under his leadership, the conglomerate won the state license to operate in the tourist-frequented Dongdaemun district in central Seoul and now stocks products of more than 370 brands.

Park also leads Doosan’s advertising agency Oricom and independent creative consulting firm Big Ant.
