Epson gets new regional leadership

Epson has appointed Toshimitsu Tanaka as its managing director of its regional office in Singapore.

He will hold the appointment concurrently with the positions of Epson Philippines Corporation’s (EPC) president/country Manager, president director of Epson Thailand and director of Epson Indonesia.

The current managing director of Epson Singapore, Koichi Endo, will be ending his tenure due to his retirement.

Seiko Epson Corporation (SEC) shared that the appointment is in line with its aim to establish a management structure to fulfill its goals and to help it expedite management decisions based on ensuring good corporate governance.

Tanaka joined SEC’s system devices sales and marketing department in April 1981. From 1997 to 2003, Tanaka was relocated to Epson’s South and Southeast Asia regional headquarters in Singapore to lead regional sales initiatives as the sales director for system devices & projector.

Tanaka returned to the SEC global headquarters in Japan in 2003 to oversee the business systems in the sales & marketing department. After a year, he was promoted to general manager. In 2007, he was appointed as general manager for the imaging products sales & marketing support department. In July 2012, Tanaka was appointed as the head of Epson Philippines.
