Regional Vice President, Korea Sales


GS So, as Regional Vice President of Korea Sales for Synopsys, leads the sales of the company’s EDA software and hardware tools, IP, and design services in the region.

Since joining Synopsys in 2004, GS has consistently prioritized the establishment of relationships based on mutual reliance and confidence, ensuring long-term partnerships and customer satisfaction.
