On Tuesday, Seo Eun Soo, founder and CEO of Seoul-based Seoul-headquartered Seo and Lee, announced that the Seoul-born Seo Group has joined the newly formed Alphabet subsidiary Seo.
The move means that Seo has joined a global brand.
The company has been focused on providing “global branding services” for Google, and its focus has been to create a global business model.
The Seoul-educated Seo is one of several Koreans who have been hired by Google in recent years.
“As we know, the company has had a number of high-profile employees in recent times,” Seo said in a statement.
“We are happy to work with the team to build on this new experience and will continue to work closely with them to grow and expand our global brand.”
Google has long been a target of Seo’s.
The search giant was sued in 2016 over the company’s handling of copyright issues, and in the aftermath of the election in 2020, Seos search engine was also targeted by hackers who claimed it had been hacked.
The two Koreas had long been at odds over Google’s search services.
In the year following Trump’s election victory, Seoungsaek became one of the first Korean companies to sign up to Google’s newly launched Global Business Partnerships program, which gave its employees access to global search engine deals.
Seo was a founding member of Seogae Holdings, which was later acquired by Google.
Seogai’s acquisition by Google also coincided with the company launching a new social media platform, Yoo-nam, in September 2020.
