Stephen Price has been appointed Managing Director of Takara Belmont (UK) Ltd as of Wednesday 1st July, as current MD Takashi Hoshina returns to Japan to take on an international role within the corporation. Stephen previously held the position of Director since 2006.
Mr Hoshina said: “During my tenure here at TBUK, we have achieved many things and made great progress… We have had to adjust our strategy for Brexit and today we are facing huge challenges with the Coronavirus, but we will come through this together. My new job in Takara Belmont is to integrate to our international business in USA and Europe, which I am optimistic towards because of what I have learned from the UK in the past 8 years. We are fortunate to have someone of Stephen’s calibre and experience to lead Takara Belmont UK. Stephen has a solid understanding of our products and markets, a proven track record and is strong communicator with deep leadership capabilities.”
Stephen added: “We are at a critical moment and we need renewed leadership to successfully implement our strategy and take advantage of the market opportunities ahead.”
We wish both Stephen and Takashi the best of luck in their new roles.
