Epson has elevated its Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Samba Moorthy as President India. Moorthy replaces Toshiyuki Kasai who is going to back to Epson Japan. Kasai has been the President for the last six years and is due to retire shortly.
Moorthy who joined Epson India in 1996 has grown through the ranks to head the company in India. With a vast body of experience in various capacities within Epson, Samba has been instrumental in setting up and building the Point of Sale (POS) and Projector businesses for Epson and for actually creating an industry where none existed earlier in India. He is widely credited with being the driving force behind Epson India's sales growth.
“Epson India has been growing exponentially for the last many years, and has reached a turnover of approx. Rs. 1664 Cr in FY 2017. This was possible because of our fantastic products, a strong internal team, a robust channel, a wide service network and a deeply rooted culture of customer centricity. Epson India is now poised for the leap to the next level. Samba is an inspiring leader with a clear vision and is the ideal person to lead and take Epson India forward, with an eye on the 2025 goals set by the company,” said Kasai.
“It's an honour to lead Epson India as we look to sustain and boost our growth momentum in the coming years. My focus will continue to be on generating value for our customers in everything we do, while building Epson into a valued and respected brand in India. These are exciting times at Epson India and I look forward to working closely with the team and our partners and business associates to take Epson India to the next level,” said Moorthy.
