Kim Yong

Organisational Head & Country Head

Appco Korea

Yong started his journey with Appco Australia in August 2010. As a 22 year old backpacker he was on a working holiday programme from South Korea. Yong was looking for a way to make some cash and improve his English, all at the same time. Yong progressed quickly and advanced to assistant ownership in just seven months! After 18 months in Australia, Yong was given the opportunity to move to Japan where he spent a further six months working closely with Vice Presidents Taras Koochin and Tony Fernandez. Yong was selected to lead the opening of Appco Group Korea in November 2012 and was subsequently promoted to Owner Partner in mid-2013. He has taken the country from strength-to-strength since he opened Appco Korea and in 2016 he received his Organisational Head promotion.
