Hideki Yajima new Managing Director of d&b in Japan.

d&b audiotechnik is pleased to announce the appointment of Hideki Yajima as Managing Director of d&b Japan. Yajima has worked at the highest levels of the pro audio industry in Japan for over 20 years and has taken over the lead of the d&b team in Yokohama on November 1.

“We are delighted to be writing the next chapter in d&b Japan’s success story with a proven expert in the pro audio world,” said Amnon Harman, CEO of d&b audiotechnik. “Yajima-san is the right person to further develop our business and establishing a broader market reach. He will be instrumental in bringing the d&b brand even closer to our customers and partners in Japan.”

Yajima brings extensive industry knowledge to his new role and far ranging experience from working with international teams and leading large divisions, most recently as National Sales Manager for Shure Japan. Prior to his role at Shure Yajima rose to Sales Director at Bose Japan. A graduate of the renowned Waseda University in Tokyo, Yajima started his professional career in the sales department of the AV division of Matsushita (today: Panasonic).

“I am honored to be a member of the team of one of the most advanced technology companies”, said Hideki Yajima. “Serving the customers of a major global brand like d&b audiotechnik is both a privilege and an exciting challenge. I look forward to the next steps of the expansion of d&b in the Japanese market.”

With the appointment of Yajima, d&b confirms its ongoing commitment to increasing its presence in Asia Pacific. “Asia Pacific is a key development region for us. d&b has firmly established itself in the Japanese market and further strengthening our team at d&b Japan will enable us to build on those excellent foundations. Working in this thriving market is key as we establish our position as audio technology brand of choice in Asia and beyond,” comments Harman.
