Kagawa heads Sharp Corporation of Australia


Sharp Corporation of Australia's new managing director is Hitoshi Kagawa.

“I am excited to be joining the Australian team and lead the local operations. Together we will set the benchmark that Sharp is the preferred brand as we expand offerings in the consumer and business solutions markets," said Kagawa (pictured, right).

Kagawa was most recently president of Sharp Brazil.

His predecessor, Keiichi (Kasey) Katsuta (pictured, left), is returning to Sharp's head office in Japan where he will work alongside the business solutions group in the Asia marketing department, with additional responsibilities for Oceania and the Middle East.

“I would like to thank Mr Keiichi Katsuta for his instrumental work over the past three years as he leaves behind a solid foundation allowing me to bring the company towards a growth trajectory,” said Kagawa.

Kagawa will also oversee the direction of the company following a major investment by Foxconn in the Sharp brand.
