Oki Data is appointing Alex Kawamura as managing director for Australia and New Zealand.
Kawamura will be responsible for propelling the company’s sales, marketing, account management, services and partner channel strategy as well as ensuring overall customer experience success.
Greg Mikaelian, national sales manager, Oki Data Australia, says, “We are delighted that Alex has agreed to join Oki Data as managing director for Australia and New Zealand. His skillset and experience of working in both emerging and mature market economies will build on the momentum achieved by Kazuo Dennie Kawahara and will be invaluable as we continue to drive our revenue growth and establish OKI as a leading player in the market.”
Kawamura joined Oki Data Corporation 14 years ago, and has held a variety of senior executive positions across the world specialising in project, partner and account management.
Kawamura previously worked as manager of sales and marketing at OKI Japan’s Domestic Sales Division, where the company says he was responsible for managing key large accounts.
Prior to that he managed Oki’s Product Development and Business Division for North and South America and Japan, and was general manager of Supply Chain Management & Business Planning for Oki Data Americas.
Kawamura replaces Kawahara who was appointed managing director five years ago, and who will now become managing director of Oki Data Europe based in London.
Kawamura has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Foreign Language from Kansai Gaidai University in Japan and also studied in graduate school at California State University, Long Beach.
