Kyocera rejigs management to reverse situation

Management changes afoot

An outspoken vice president of Japanese Kyocera Corporation has been promoted to effective head of the corporation. Yasuo Nishiguchi is now president of the corporation, while Kensuke Itoh has been replaced by Nishiguchi. Inamori San, who formed the corporation and believes in ceramic technology, remains chairman Emeritus. Nishiguchi invented the EcoSys brand name which made its printers popular throughout the world. He made controversial statements last year in Kyoto, when he told a gaggle of UK and European journalists that major Japanese corporations had the whiff of corruption about them. ®
