Kyocera has announced the promotion of Takuya Marubayashi to the position of president of its EMEA region, enhancing the division's digital transformation efforts and helping it better understand the demands of the market.

Marubayashi was previously president of Kyocera Mita China Sales and Trading (now Document Solutions China) and senior general manager of the Corporate Sales Division at KYOCERA Document Solutions.

“It is both an honour the company has placed on me and a responsibility I take most seriously in accepting the role of president for Kyocera Document Solutions in EMEA," Marubayashi said. "We are in the midst of our transformation journey, and I am confident that we have the right people with the expertise and knowledge to achieve our strategy, objectives and to maintain Kyocera as a sector leader."

A major part of Marubayashi's new role will be developing the company's relationship with its partners and growing its portfolio of hardware and software document solutions. It will also include identifying opportunities for growth and expansion into new territories within the region.

“Our stakeholders and partnerships are of paramount importance to the company and I aim to build on these relationships by offering the best support, skills sets and document solutions products in the industry, whilst accompanying our customers on this digital journey," Marubayashi added.

Marubayashi has spent the majority of his career at Kyocera, joining the company in 1999 in its sales team and working his way through the ranks. He will now lead the EMEA's country teams from the Netherlands at the company's headquarters, KDE.

“As a company, KDE will continue expanding our business in regions where opportunities exist. However, what will remain vitally important is delivering a customer experience that makes a differential value within our various customer segments," Marubayashi finished.
