Hyundai Motor America has named Kyung Soo "Kenny" Lee as its president and chief executive in a move that will make Lee the fourth top executive in less than four years to lead sales for the Korean automaker.

Lee, who begins his role on Sept. 18, takes over for Jerry Flannery, who returns to his role as executive vice president and chief legal and safety officer. Flannery stepped into the top role in December, after the organization parted ways with Dave Zuchowski. He had led Hyundai Motor America for almost three years following the departure of John Krafcik at the end of 2013.

The 61-year-old Lee began his career with Hyundai in 1982. He had been service as president and CEO of Hyundai Translead, a manufacturer of dry and refridgerated van trailers, container chassis, and concerter dollies.

"Mr. Lee has an in-depth understanding of Hyundai Motor’s global operation, following nearly two decades in diverse markets around the world, including the U.S., Europe and Latin America," said Won-hee "Wayne" Lee, president and CEO of Hyundai Motor Company. "I would like to personally thank Jerry Flannery for his leadership and the stability he brought the organization while serving as interim president and CEO."
