Ikuma’s 14 years of experience with Harris & Bruno have well equipped him for his new position.
Harris & Bruno International announces that Ikuma Suzuki has been promoted to Technical Director of APJ (Asia Pacific Japan Region). As of August, Ikuma is now responsible in the APJ region for managing and supervising the H&B technical support team, coordinating projects, and working closely with OEM’s.
Ikuma has been part of the H&B team for 14 years. With an education in mechanical engineering, Ikuma joined Harris & Bruno in 2003 as a Project Engineer in the H&B Roseville, CA, Headquarters. In late 2006, he moved back to Japan to continue as an H&B Project Engineer. He was promoted to Project Manager in 2016.
“It is great to see Ikuma grow within the company and take on this new role,” said Vice President of Operations, Jim Riga. “His dedication, hard-work, and solution driven attitude are the ingredients we need to grow and support our customers in APJ.”
Ikuma is well prepared for his new role, with his previous position having many of the same responsibilities. As Technical Director of APJ, he will now have a much wider territory to manage.
“We have great people in APJ territory,” Ikuma said. “I hope to construct a talented team here in order to provide exceptional technical support to APJ customers.”
