|Hyundai Motor and affiliate Kia Motors promoted younger executives on Friday, in moves analysts said would help smoothen an eventual leadership succession at the family-owned conglomerate. Hyundai Motor said it elevated chief marketing officer Cho Won-hong to executive vice president. Cho, 50, was handpicked by the automaker' s heir apparent Chung Eui-sun, people familiar with the matter said. Its domestic public relations chief Kong Young-woon, who too is 50, was also elevated to the post, making the duo the second-youngest executive vice presidents currently at Hyundai.
