Ricoh has appointed Joji Tokunaga as its new President and Chief Executive Officer in the Americas. Glenn Laverty remains Senior Vice President of Ricoh Americas Marketing and President & CEO of Ricoh Canada Inc.
A graduate of the University of Delaware, Tokunaga has been with Ricoh, headquartered in Japan, for more than 30 years. “Ricoh’s global transformation is not only on the path to success, but it’s one that has encouraged us to take a look back at our history of innovation,” said Tokunaga. “Throughout our more than 80 years, we have brought industry firsts to market that still today remain key business tools to help people share information and ultimately work smarter.”
Most recently, Tokunaga served as Executive Vice President and General Manager of Shared Services within Ricoh Americas where he oversaw the organization’s human resources, finance, legal, supply chain, customer administration, IT, process improvement, marketing, and strategic planning functions that provide support to Ricoh’s main business units in the Americas. Prior to this, as Executive Vice President and Deputy General Manager of Shared Services, Tokunaga focused on optimizing marketing, IT, and operations to align with Ricoh’s services-led transformation.
