Suhn then went on to say that "Frankly, a guy like me doesn't want to  think about the past. I try to bring ideas that can help us grow."

Sohn was speaking at an event in Santa Clara focusing on the growth of Korean technology companies. He spoke to NBC Bay Area about his company's plans to build two seperate Silicon Valley campuses, hiring lots of locals in the process.

"Silicon Valley is the engine of growth," says Sohn. "We're committed to be part of that growth."
