Business printer and multifunction devices manufacturer OKI Data Corporation has appointed Alex Kawamura as its managing director for Australia and New Zealand.
Kawamura assumes the top ANZ post after working for OKI Data for the past 14 years, most recently serving as manager of sales and marketing at OKI Japan’s domestic sales division.
He replaces Kazuo “Dennie” Kawahara, who was ANZ managing director for the past five years. He will be the new managing director of OKI Data Europe based in London.
“We are delighted that Alex has agreed to join OKI Data Australia as managing director for Australia and New Zealand,” said OKI Data national sales manager Greg Mikaelian.
“His skillset and experience of working in both emerging and mature market economies will build on the momentum achieved by Dennie Kazuo Kawahara and will be invaluable as we continue to drive our revenue growth and establish OKI as a leading player in the business printers and multi-function business printer market.”
Kawamura also managed OKI’s product development and business division for North and South America and Japan. He was also general manager of supply chain management and business planning for OKI Data Americas.
