TOA appoints Canadian director
TOA Canada announced the appointment of Rico Lucia to Director for TOA Canada Corp.
In April 2017, Canada became one of only three TOA subsidiaries across the world to have a director appointed, joining South Africa and Hong Kong. The corporation has only appointed directors one other time in its history, in Europe. According to the company, this alignment is part of TOA Corporation’s strategic business plan allowing subsidiaries have more autonomy within their region.
In this role, Lucia is responsible for all the business operations in Canada, including new business development, sales, marketing and operations team leadership, as well as policies and procedures.
“I am honoured that TOA Corporation believed in my successes at TOA Canada Corporation and globally for the company. I have a strong vision and big goals for the future success of TOA Canada Corporation,” said Lucia in a statement.
Lucia, 43, is the youngest international TOA staff member promoted to director. “He has a proven track record of growing sales and leading operational development with a strong customer focus. Rico will be a strong leader for the Canadian market and commercial audio and intercom industry,” said Mitsuhiro Omura, President and CEO.
