Kyocera Document Solutions, one of the world's leading document solutions companies, announces the appointment of Takuya Marubayashi as the new President of the organisation's Europe, Middle East and Africa operations from 1 April 2018. Under the leadership of Marubayashi, the European headquarters will continue to deliver valuable products and services to its customers, sales companies, international partners and employees as the company drives its digital transformation and advances its efforts to be at the forefront of the Document Solutions industry.

The new president of Kyocera Document Solutions Europe, with its headquarters located in Hoofddorp, The Netherlands, has a deep connection with the company for which he began working in 1999 in the Printer Sales Department at Kyocera Corporation. Throughout his journey within the group, Marubayashi developed his career at both Kyocera Corporation and in the Document Solutions division in Europe, the Middle East, Africa (EMEA) and Asia. Prior to his new role, Marubayashi was President of Kyocera Mita China Sales and Trading Corporation (now Document Solutions China) and also worked in the vital role of Senior General Manager of the Corporate Sales Division at Kyocera Document Solutions Incorporated in Osaka, Japan.

Marubayashi now returns to Europe to take the leadership over from Takahiro Sato and will continue positioning EMEA as the prominent region in the Document Solutions business globally.

Marubayashi comments: "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. 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.

"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".

The objectives set to achieve these goals within the business are clear and the organisation will continue innovating within the digital arena related to document management and solutions.

As the new President, Marubayashi will further encourage the business's strategy of diversification in the EMEA region. "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," concludes Marubayashi.
