Muratec Officially Names Yutaka Moriwaki as New President and CEO
Muratec America, Inc., manufacturer of multifunction office equipment and business productivity solutions, officially announced the appointment of Yutaka Moriwaki to president and CEO.
Moriwaki will replace current Muratec president, Hideki “Henry” Mori, who has been promoted to general manager of the communications equipment division. As general manager, Mori will oversee worldwide sales and engineering efforts for the communications division.
Moriwaki’s appointment is a direct result of his successful track record in the product planning department. Under his watch Muratec pioneered new hardware and software solutions that helped revitalize sales efforts worldwide. Moriwaki has been with Muratec for over twenty years and has served in various senior-level sales, marketing and administrative capacities.
“The vision and direction of Henry and Jim (D’Emidio, vice president of sales and marketing) has lead Muratec back to profitability and I look to continue that momentum,” says Moriwaki. “Our dealer’s growth and success is my primary concern and I look forward to providing them with the products, service and support they’ve come to expect from Muratec.”
“Although we’re sad to see Henry leave, we believe it will ultimately lead to a stronger Muratec that is profitable and stable across all markets,” says D’Emidio. “Yutaka has the full support of MAI staff and I believe he will quickly earn the level of trust and respect that Henry had with our dealers.”
Muratec is also pleased to announce the promotion of Shoichiro “Sean” Takasaki to director of product and new technology. Mr. Takasaki was one of Muratec’s top sales managers in Japan and a key closer for the network solutions team. He was a driving force behind the deployment and promotion of IP fax solutions which have helped revolutionize the fax communication market in Japan.
“This is an exciting opportunity and I look forward to developing products that will increase our market share in North America,” says Takasaki. “We will also look to aggressively pursue technology partners and develop unique communication solutions that will allow our dealers to differentiate themselves in the marketplace.”
