TOA Announces New President & CEO, Yuma Kawai
December 27th, 2023
Secaucus, NJ – TOA Electronics Inc., a premier manufacturer of intelligent audio and security systems is pleased to announce the appointment of Yuma Kawai as President & CEO effective January 1st, 2024.
This comes as an easy transition – already being the President & CEO of TOA Corporation’s Canadian subsidiary, TOA Canada Corporation. Kawai, who came onboard as CTO of TEI (Q2 of 2023), worked very closely with his predecessor, now former President Hiro Omura, throughout the year. The mentorship, which not only prepared Kawai in undertaking his future as President, has also made for a smooth transferal – both internally and externally, in the leadership of the company.
“I am extremely proud to assume the role as the new President of TOA Electronics, Inc. and lead this team. Throughout our company's history, we have been dedicated to providing innovative and high-quality audio equipment, along with delivering exceptional audio experiences to our valued customers. I am committed to upholding this tradition and building new successes in the future.
Our mission is to address our customers' audio-related concerns through the delivery of top-quality audio equipment. We aim to support your safety and communication in public spaces such as retail stores, commercial facilities, schools, houses of worship and hospitals along with the other markets we serve. Building trust with our customers and contributing to communication in society through sound, are key aspects of our corporate purpose.
In my new position, I eagerly anticipate collaborating with the team, employing innovative approaches, and delivering outstanding services to exceed customer expectations. I am excited about the prospect of sharing richer experiences through communication and IP networking with all of you.
Finally, I express my sincere gratitude for your ongoing support and cooperation. I look forward to working together to create a fantastic future.”
