Tony Grima appointed first Australian MD at OKI Data Australia

OKI Data Australia has announced the appointment of Tony Grima as Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand. A proud moment, as he is one of a few local team members across OKI Worldwide promoted to the role of MD to lead their local subsidiary.

Based in Sydney, Tony will be responsible for propelling the company’s sales, marketing, account management, services and partner channel strategy, as well as ensuring overall customer experience success. Tony originally joined OKI Data Australia in 2018 as the Sales Director and later moved into the role of General Manager for Sales and Marketing. Prior to that, Tony was the Australia General Manager of Fuji Xerox Printers where he led the implementation of a new channel partner program, reconfigured the company’s sales pipeline and improved service levels. 

“OKI Data Corporation is a world leading manufacturer of business printers and multifunction devices. I am honoured to be appointed as the new Managing Director for the ANZ region. We have just celebrated our 10-year anniversary in December last year, and I am looking forward to working with our talented team and partners as the Managing Director in 2020,” said Tony.

For his first initiative, Tony will be introducing the new OKI Advantage Partner Program and online Partner Portal in Australia and New Zealand. 

“At OKI, we truly value our partners and this program shows our commitment in offering them a great support network,” he explained. “The program focuses on providing the assistance and tools needed to become a successful OKI partner and continued nurturing to build a strong and successful working relationship.”

Tony will be replacing Alex Kawamura who was appointed Managing Director for OKI Data Australia in October 2017. Kawamura’s new role will involve leading the Product Development and Business Division in Japan Headquarters for both the US and ANZ markets. 

“We are extremely pleased that Tony will become the new Managing Director for OKI Data Australia. His leadership skill and wealth of experience in business development will be invaluable in accelerating the business growth of OKI in the ANZ region. I wish him and the team all the best,” said Alex.
