Kawai is not only a skilled marketeer, but he also gradually shifted focus to become Sales Manager, Integrated Systems for Shure Japan. Kawai’s experience and background will help take Q-SYS Japan to the next level of business growth.
“We are very excited to have Jun joining our team in Japan,” says Andy Pearce, Senior Director, Southeast Asia and Pacific, Q-SYS. “With the increasing need for a cloud-based and fully integrated AV&C solution from industries in Japan, we are confident that the Q-SYS Platform and Ecosystem will exceed customer expectations with its flexibility, ease of integration, and holistic user experience.”
