AUSTIN, TX — Hoon Chung, former senior vice president and general manager of Activant’s Automotive Group, has left the company. His departure was effective yesterday.

At Activant, Hoon oversaw the Automotive Group’s sales, marketing, operations, product development, customer support and professional services from the group’s headquarters in Austin, Texas.

Chung joined the company in November 2002 and was part of Activant’s effort to embrace a renewed “customer-centric” focus, a change that was tangibly reinforced by the renaming of the company, formerly known as CCI/Triad.

Chung’s duties have been assumed on an interim basis by Activant President, CEO and Chairman of the Board Mike Aviles.

According to Activant Vice President of Marketing Jonathan Gear, Chung’s departure “doesn’t change our strategy, vision or message to the aftermarket.”
