Having stepped down from his position as the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Samsung in December, Injong Rhee has now announced in LinkedIn post that he has joined Google as an Entrepreneur-In-Residence (EIR) to lead the firm’s internet of things (IoT) business.

“IoT is a new and exciting space with tremendous potential to transform how we use and deploy technology in our everyday lives,” Rhee said.

Rhee had an illustrious career with the South Korean technology giant, having served as its Executive Vice President of Enterprise Business and mCommerce, and its Vice President of Technology Strategy, prior to his role as CTO of the company.

In his new position, Rhee will report to Diane Greene, CEO of Google Cloud and Member of the Board for Alphabet.

“One of the first things I would like to do with my Google colleagues is to get these efforts coordinated and aligned toward a concerted IoT story of Google -- in the process, create distinct consumer and enterprise product lines,” said Rhee.

“With support from Diane and the other members of the leadership team, I hope to grow Google IoT into a sustainable and profitable business line.”
