Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas on Thursday said it appointed Fumihiko Hayashida as its new CEO and president, effective Friday. Hayashida will succeed David Widmann, who retired at the end of the company’s fiscal year on March 31.
Hayashida will relocate to the company’s Wayne headquarters.
Prior to assuming his new role, Hayashida was president of the company’s Brazilian health care operations, where he oversaw significant sales growth over the last three years.
He joined Konica Minolta in 2014 as the global manager for all Konica Minolta Healthcare overseas sales operations. In his new role, Hayashida will drive the continued digital transformation of the health care business and technology strategy, further accelerating the company’s advancements in digital radiography, ultrasound, health care information technology and services solutions.
“I look forward to working with the exceptional team that David has assembled to continue our growth across the Americas and further our digital transformation with new capabilities that help our customers transform their delivery of health care to patients,” Hayashida said. “As we continue to innovate imaging and IT technologies, bringing new capabilities to our customers, expanding our digital footprint across Latin America and redesigning the service experience, we will work in concert with our partners and customers to support their goals and continue to grow our business.”
