Toshiba America Business Solutions has selected the firm’s current president and chief operating officer, Mark Mathews, to succeed Matt Yamada in the role of chief executive officer, effective April 1. Mathews will also retain his position as company president.

Yamada will be succeeded in his other role as the company’s chairman of the board by Junichi Kawasaki, vice president of Toshiba TEC America. Yamada has held the dual roles within Toshiba America Business Solutions (TABS) since 2009.

“Mark Mathews will ensure that Toshiba America Business Solutions stays the course and continues leading the marketplace as a MFP innovator and managed document services provider,” Yamada said. “With the addition of Mr. Kawasaki as the new chairman to the executive management team, Toshiba is well positioned for continued growth and success.”

Among Mathews’ duties include his continued oversight of the Electronic Imaging Division’s strategic direction and operations, and supervision of Toshiba Business Solutions, a subsidiary corporation of TABS. Toshiba Business Solutions operates a network of office equipment dealers in the U.S. and Latin America.

Prior to this appointment, Mathews has been with the company since 1993, holding a number of management positions within the Electronic Imaging Division. His career of more than 20 years in the industry have given him expertise in areas including output optimization, date and device security, document management, and sophisticated software integration for managing business workflow and improving productivity.
