“On behalf of Noritake, I thank Peter for his leadership and commitment over the past 20 years,” Matthew Mizukuchi, president of Noritake’s U.S. tabletop division, said. “He and his talented team have built an organization that is truly world class and have kept our products front and center in the U.S. marketplace.”

Noritake also announced that Jay Fingert has been appointed senior vice president of sales and marketing, and Michele Evans has been named national sales manager, both effective Oct. 1. Prior to being named, Fingert was vice president of sales and Evans was a national service manager/account executive.
