KYOCERA Document Solutions picks new CEO, president of the Americas

Fairfield-based Kyocera Document Solutions America Inc., a document solutions company, announced that Oscar Sanchez has been appointed CEO and president, effective Sept. 1.

Sanchez will be transitioning from his current role as executive vice president of Kyocera Document Solutions Europe.

Yukio Ikeda, the current Kyocera Document Solutions America president, will continue in an executive role.

“Under Mr. Ikeda’s leadership, the Americas continued to experience strong growth,” said Norihiko Ina, president of Kyocera Document Solutions Corp. “As markets evolve, as our business grows in new ways, we must add new strengths. Mr. Sanchez offers a unique skill set within our company.”

Sanchez began at Kyocera in 1996 and by 2002 he was general manager of Kyocera Document Solutions Spain. He’s also taken on additional roles for business development in Europe, heading the company’s corporate sales division and marketing division.

“Oscar is a dynamic individual,” Ikeda said. “I look forward to working with him to build on the success we’ve had in the Americas.”

“At each stage of my career, I’ve embraced the next challenge,” Sanchez said. “The Americas are our company’s biggest market, and therefore both our biggest challenge and biggest opportunity. The expectation is to do great things. That’s exactly what I plan to do.”
