David VanderWaal is working to bridge the gap between advanced technology and everyday domestic tasks. He has positioned LG as a brand people can trust to make their lives easier, one home-cooked meal at a time.
That begins with the company’s innovative smart kitchen partnerships. New LG appliances will be able to calibrate cooking times and temperatures according to recipes from Innit and SmartChef; LG ovens will now recognize the specifications on smart meals designed for Tovala smart ovens.
If you want smarts beyond the oven, check out VanderWaal’s work on LG’s ThinQ artificial intelligence platform, which can adapt to and make recommendations based on user habits. It all builds on VanderWaal’s long career at top appliance brands: With a résumé that includes stints at Maytag, Whirlpool, Amana and Bosch, VanderWaal is uniquely positioned to lead the charge at LG.
