Kyocera Europe’s executive vice president, Oscar Sanchez, will take on a new challenge of innovation and digital transformation with his appointment as president and CEO of Kyocera Document Solutions America, it has been announced. He will take up his new role as of 1 September 2018.

In Spain and throughout Europe, Sanchez is known to have challenged the status quo during his time with Kyocera Europe, continuously searching for opportunities to innovate and delivering exceptional results in major strategic initiatives.

At each stage of my career, I’ve embraced the next challenge,” said Sanchez. “The Americas are our company’s biggest market, challenge and opportunity which I am relishing taking on in my new role.”

The markets are some of the most rapidly expanding and constantly changing in the world and success in the years ahead will only result from further accelerating the pace of innovation.

As markets evolve, as our business grows in new ways, we must add new strengths. Oscar Sanchez offers a unique skill set within our company”, said Norihiko Ina, president of Kyocera.

The document solutions industry finds itself in a fundamental moment of transformation and regeneration. Having the opportunity to face this challenge from the front in a leading company like KYOCERA, and in a market as dynamic as Spain, is, without doubt, an honour.”
