Toyotsugu Kuwamura, executive vice president and general manager, Business Imaging Solutions Group (BISG), Canon U.S.A., will retire from Canon Inc. in July. He served more than 38 years with Canon.
Joe Adachi, chairman and CEO of Canon U.S.A., Inc., wrote, “As you are aware, Mr. Kuwamura accomplished a great deal with BISG, simplifying the marketing structure for the first time in 20 years.
“He also improved communications by de-centralizing the dealer support system, so that through local connections we can provide faster decisions and better support to our dealers across the country. Additionally, he increased the value of the Canon brand with his “One Canon’’ approach.”
Shinichi Yoshida will succeed Kuwamura as executive vice president/GM, BISG, as of July 1.
