’Emidio replaces Yutaka Moriwaki, who has been promoted to General Manager of Muratec Sales Limited, the domestic sales division of Murata Machinery Limited.
D’Emidio joined Muratec in 1987 as an Area Sales Manager. He quickly ascended the ranks serving in a number of sales management positions, as well as overseeing the Muratec national accounts program. Since 1997 he has held the position of Vice-President, Sales and Marketing.
“Jim D’Emidio is one of the industry’s most respected executives and I’m confident that under his leadership Muratec will accelerate revenue growth and market share,” said Moriwaki. “The past three years have been a period of growth for me and I would like to thank the Muratec staff and our dealers for their support. Although it’s hard to leave such a great team, having the opportunity to lead the domestic sales division is a tremendous opportunity and will assist Muratec in expanding in other markets.”
“This organizational restructuring will lead to a stronger Muratec that achieves profitability and market share gains globally,” says D’Emidio. “In order to accelerate growth in the North American market we will combine our best-in-class customer service and technical support with a renewed focus toward product innovation, technology acquisition and solution portfolio enhancement to create a new value proposition for the dealer channel that will increase focus on Muratec placements and stimulate revenue growth.”
