[/caption] Nakamura, who is fondly called ?Hide-san? by Epson colleagues, business partners, and the local media, has led the Philippines operations since May 2006, making him the longest-serving Japanese executive in history of Epson Philippines Corporation (EPC). In his place starting July 1 will be Toshimitsu Tanaka, who was formerly the General Manager of Imaging Products Sales & Marketing Support, Department for Imaging Products at the Sales & Marketing Center of SEC. During his six-year term, Nakamura-san built strong connections with the Philippine local community and personally visited the offices of Epson authorized distributors and dealers nationwide. According to him, the delicious Filipino seafood, fun-filled Filipino festivals, pristine white sand beaches, beautiful old churches, the warm hospitality everywhere he went, as well as his close associations with the local Filipino communities made his six-year term memorable and enjoyable. Nakamura-san also started a tradition during the annual company holiday party of dressing up as Santa Claus and giving gifts from his own pocket, earning him the nickname ?Boss Santa? among children of Epson employees. [caption id="attachment_2749" align="aligncenter" width="255" caption="Nakamura-san as Boss Santa"][/caption] ?I am glad that I have served in the Philippine office for six years, as it has greatly contributed to my knowledge and enriched my experience. As I express my deep gratitude for the cooperation and support of my EPC colleagues, business partners and the Philippine media who have made my time here fruitful and rewarding, I also appeal to them to give the same warm reception to my successor, Mr. Tanaka, who has a wealth of experience that will guarantee the successful accomplishment of the Epson goal of bringing our leading global technologies to all Filipinos,? he said. From 2006 until the present, Nakamura-san led, managed, and nurtured the local managers in the Philippines to support and achieve the goals and directions of both the SEC and Epson?s regional headquarters in Singapore. He was also instrumental in establishing customer engagement processes through customized solutions, better after-sales service and strong support from channels including trade partners, distributors, and dealers. Of equal importance was Nakamura-san?s focus on strengthening regional sales operations including the upgrade of Cebu and Davao offices each with its own solution center, all of which contributed to realizing the new style of business support in the provinces. In the last three years, EPC posted double-digit growths in both the inkjet printer and projector businesses to make the Philippines a strong contributor to Epson business goals for the region. His successor, Tanaka-san, brings with him 32 years of experience working in Epson?s global headquarters and its affiliate companies. Tanaka?s expertise in sales and marketing is seen as a positive leverage in continuing the growing presence of Epson in the country as he embarks on the goal of achieving double sales turnover within three to five years. ]]>
