Samsung has appointed former Apple marketer Will Lever as its new European brand director.

Lever has joined Samsung Electronics Europe in his new role straight from a previous role with Best Buy. He is also a former head of marketing for Carphone Warehouse, where he headed The Geek Squad, its technology troubleshooting service.

Prior to Carphone Warehouse, he was head of marketing and communications for Apple UK and Ireland and he is also a former head of consumer marketing at O2.
