FOR-A appoints new senior management for UK operations

FOR-A, a leading manufacturer of systems for the security, broadcast and professional video industries, has announced the appointment of Jackson Kitahara and Haruyuki Tomihara as Managing Director and Technical Director of FOR-A UK, respectively.
Jackson Kitahara, who established FOR-A’s UK operations in 1985, returns to FOR-A UK following postings at the company’s Boston and Los Angeles operations. As MD of FOR-A UK, Kitahara’s remit is to drive sales further in the European market. He has been with the company for 26 years and replaces Hiroshi Nakao who has joined FOR-A’s operations at HQ in Tokyo, Japan.
Haruyuki Tomihara has worked with FOR-A for 20 years having started out in the company’s R&D centre where he helped to develop its broadcast component switchers. He has also held the position of West Coast Sales Manager, where he was based out of FOR-A’s LA office, before moving on to the Boston office.
“It is very exciting to return to FOR-A UK and help drive the company through the next stage in its development,” said Jackson Kitahara. “During his time in the UK Hiroshi Nakao built a strong foundation which we can now build on.”
