Ichiro Iino Promoted Hitachi’s New Chief Executive APAC, Kojin Nakakita is India MD

Iino will be responsible to grow Hitachi’s “Social Innovation Business” in ASEAN, India, Korea and Oceania

Hitachi has promoted Ichiro Iino as Chief Executive for Asia Pacific from Managing Director of Hitachi India, who will be responsible to grow Hitachi’s “Social Innovation Business” in ASEAN, India, Korea and Oceania.

Also, Hitachi India announced appointment Kojin Nakakita as Managing Director who will be responsible to grow Hitachi’s “Social Innovation Business” in India. Currently, Nakakita is the Deputy Managing Director of Hitachi India.

Iino will succeed Kiyoaki Iigaya, who is returning to Japan to assume the post of President of Hitachi Document Solutions Co., Ltd. He will also take over the role as new Chairman of Hitachi Asia Ltd. and Hitachi India Pvt. Ltd. from Iigaya.

Nakakita will succeed Ichiro Iino, who will be assigned Chief Executive for Asia Pacific as well as Chairman of Hitachi Asia Ltd. and Hitachi India Pvt. Ltd.

Both appointments will be effective April 1, 2015.

In his new role, Iino will be responsible for business development in four key areas: healthcare solutions, collaborative solutions with developers and conglomerates, and home appliance business targeting the B2B market, and financial solutions.

“Previously, Oceania and Korea are not under the purview of any region’s Chief Executive. The fact that they are now under my responsibility is testament of the growing importance of the APAC region to Hitachi, and proof of how the company is accelerating its globalization and transformation into a global major player. I will work closely with the Managing Directors in ASEAN, India, Korea and Oceania to customize business expansion plans for each region,” said Iino.

In his new role, Nakakita will lead Hitachi India to become an independent, self-reliant entity as the Hitachi Group moves towards “autonomous decentralized global management”.
