Nakamasu to lead Canon in Oceania

Promotion to managing director follows company reshuffle

Consumer and business imaging company, Canon, has appointed Takanobu Nakamasu as the new managing director for Oceania A/NZ and Lamberts.

The appointment follows Nakamasu’s predecessor of almost three years, Kenji Kobayashi, taking up a new project within Canon as managing director in France.

Nakamasu aims to achieve a long-term competitive edge by effectively leading the short-term strategic direction.

He was formerly Canon’s group executive in Tokyo.
