Fuji Xerox’s Australian country general manager Tony Grima has left to join rival print vendor OKI Data Australia, where he has been appointed as sales director for Australia.
In the new role, Grima will lead OKI’s sales motion, including channel partner development, the vendor’s distribution strategy and revenue growth.
During his time at Fuji Xerox, Grima led the rollout of a new partner program and updated the company’s sales pipeline. He joined the print vendor in January 2017 from paintbrush manufacturer Oldfields, where he had served as chief executive since 2013.
OKI Data Australia managing director Alex Kawamura welcomed Grima’s 15-plus years of experience.
“We are delighted that Tony has joined OKI at this time. His skillset and experience of working in business development in fast growth companies will be invaluable as we continue to accelerate our revenue expansion,” Kawamura said.
“It’s very exciting to join OKI with its passionate community of channel partner and customer advocates, breakthrough technology and revenue momentum,” Grima said of his appointment.
”I look forward to the journey ahead and helping OKI achieve strong and mutually rewarding results for and in collaboration with our channel partners.”
Kawamura took on OKI’s local managing director role in October last year, having worked in the organisation for some 14 years, most recently managing sales and marketing at OKI Japan’s domestic sales division.
