Global business printers and multifunction devices vendor OKI Data Australia has appointed Tony Grima managing director for Australia and New Zealand.

Based in Sydney, Grima - who joined OKI Data Australia in 2018 as the sales director and later moved into the role of general manager for sales and marketing - will be responsible for the company’s sales, marketing, account management, services and partner channel strategy.

Prior to OKI Data, Grima was the Australia general manager of Fuji Xerox Printers where he led the implementation of a new channel partner program, reconfigured the company’s sales pipeline and improved service levels.

Grima replaces Alex Kawamura who was appointed managing director for Australia in October 2017. Kawamura takes up a new role leading the product development and business division in OKI Data’s Japan headquarters for both the US and ANZ markets.

“OKI Data Corporation is a world leading manufacturer of business printers and multifunction devices. I am honoured to be appointed as the new Managing Director for the ANZ region,” said Grima.

“We have just celebrated our 10-year anniversary in December last year, and I am looking forward to working with our talented team and partners as the managing director in 2020.”

OKI Data says Grima, for his first initiative, will be introducing the new OKI Advantage Partner Program and online Partner Portal in Australia and New Zealand.

“At OKI, we truly value our partners and this program shows our commitment in offering them a great support network,” Grima explained, “The program focuses on providing the assistance and tools needed to become a successful OKI partner and continued nurturing to build a strong and successful working relationship.”
