Fingerprint Cards (FPC) recruits Country Manager in Japan
Takeshi Murakami has been appointed FPC Country Manager Japan. He joins the company from Authentec Inc. where he held the position as Senior Sales Manager Japan, and was responsible for sales into mobiles, tablets, PCs and other IT products for all major OEM customers in Japan.
Since the local office in Tokyo opened in January 2013, FPC’s activities in Japan have increased significantly. Due to quickly growing awakened interest in biometric products and systems in Japan, we are now expanding the existing team to include a sales and marketing function. The establishment of this function locally in Tokyo will enable FPC to increase its sales in Japan and provide even better program support to the large number of electronics companies in the country.
Johan Carlström, President and Chief Executive Officer of FPC, comments:
“I am delighted to welcome Takeshi Murakami to the FPC team. He brings valuable customer contacts as well as valuable additional biometry expertise to our company. The launch we announced with Fujitsu earlier this week is just the start of FPC’s success in Japan. We expect multiple launches in Japan and other parts of Asia during the rest of 2013 and beyond.”
