As Editor-in-chief

A former senior Korean diplomat has joined The Korea Post media, publisher of 3 English and 2 Korean-language news publications since 1985. His title of office at The Korea Post is editor-in-chief but, in view of his lengthy service with the Korean Embassies overseas and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, he is expected to cover a wide range of areas and topics related with the diplomatic community in Korea and around the world.

In addition to Managing Editor Kevin Lee of The Korea Post (former editor of The Korea Herald and The Korea Times), Editor-in-chief Kim is expected to extend a great helping hand to The Korea Post, especially in the area of its coverage of the diplomatic community in Korea and around the world. 
As in the case of the managing editor, Editor-in-chief Kim also has an English name, Jimmy, one identical with the first name of a former President of the United States, Jimmy Carter.
Here is a brief resume of Editor-in-chief Jimmy Kim:
