In the fight against Intel, he also embarked on an important challenge to become the largest semiconductor manufacturer. However, Kun-Hee’s health problems had started to increase recently.
A 78-year-old leader died. Now shown as Samsung’s successor, Lee Jae-Yong will sit in his grandfather’s seat and take over the post of chairman of the board. Jae-Yong, who previously served as vice-chairman of the board, will have taken over operational management. Kun-Hee’s fortune, on the other hand, is estimated to be 20.7 billion dollars.
