NEC Australia managing director Tetsuro Akagi has taken on the top Asia Pacific role for the company, as APAC chief executive.

Akagi’s new role sees him responsible for the business operations and expansions of the Asia Pacific region to further deliver its growth plans.

Akagi says the Asia Pacific region represents a strong future for NEC.

“I hope to continue to work closely with our NEC country affiliates in the region, strenthen relationships with existing customers while expanding our business, and position NEC as one of the leading innovative technology and solutions companies in the region,” he says.

Akagi, who has been with NEC more than 30 years, has also been appointed as senior vice president of NEC Corporation.

Akagi has been NEC Australia managing director since January 2014, and NEC says in that role, Akagi was responsible for evolving the company ‘into one of the country’s leading ICT solutions and services businesses’.

His previous roles at NEC include positions in sales, financial, operations and business management across several countries.

Akagi takes over from Toshiya Matsuki, who has been appointed as executive vice president of NEC Corporation and president of NEC Global Business Unit.
