Sharp announced that Yoshihisa (Bob) Ishida, Executive Vice President, Sharp Corporation, has been appointed to the position of CEO, Sharp Europe. Mr Ishida takes over from Tetsuji (Ted) Kawamura, who will be moving to a position at Sharp Electronics Corporation (USA).

Mr Ishida said: “I am focused on driving innovation at Sharp, where we are developing connected technologies to support new ways of living and working. Our starting point is always how our products and solutions will benefit people’s lifestyles. Sharp is well known in Europe as a technology partner that provides high quality products and excellent customer service; that puts us in an ideal position to develop and provide a new generation of services.”

In other changes to the management team within Europe, Jun (Jeff) Ashida, currently President, Information Systems Europe, is promoted to the position of President, Sharp Electronics Europe, reporting to Mr Ishida.

Alex Hermann, currently Vice President, Sharp Information Systems Europe, is promoted to the position of President, Sharp Information Systems Europe, reporting to Jun Ashida.
