Toyo Ink SC Holdings, the parent company of the Toyo Ink Group of Japan, announced two senior position changes.
The board has appointed Satoru Takashima, the current senior executive officer, to serve as the new president and chief operating officer.
Takashima, who entered Toyo Ink SC Holdings in 1984, has held a variety of leadership positions in Japan and overseas. As president of the company’s core subsidiary Toyochem since 2014, he demonstrated his ability for cultivating new businesses with the launch of the new healthcare business.
Katsumi Kitagawa, who has transitioned out of the presidency into a new role as the chairman and group CEO, will continue to further the formulation and promotion of growth strategies for the group and to support Takashima in this time of transition.
