Meet Takashi Tada, the new Managing Director of NEC New Zealand.

In his new role, Tada will be responsible for leading NEC New Zealand to continue its business transformation endeavours.

Tada has close to 20 years of experience with NEC’s global business, where he has held several senior roles in management and strategic planning for the company’s IT and telecommunications businesses.

He started out in sales at NEC Corporation’s 1st Asia Division, and has since developed operational skills and honed management competence, working primarily in the Greater China and Asia Pacific region.

Between the years of 2004-2008, NEC mention that Tada joined the company’s Solutions department in APAC, taking on a leadership role in regional business expansion.

Prior to his new role, Tada was FM of Corporate Strategy at NEC Australia where he was responsible for developing new businesses and leading strategic initiatives in the local market.

Tada says he is extremely honoured about his new appointment, and looks forward to new opportunities in New Zealand.

“Over the last few years, our New Zealand operations have witnessed exciting local innovations and subsequent growth in new areas, and have undergone a gradual shift in focus – we are transforming ourselves from a solely communications business into an innovative and integrated ICT solutions and services organisation that contributes to multiple areas of society and community.”

NEC says Tada will continue to empower people through innovation and collaboration with various local and global initiatives and projects.

“With a strong, enthusiastic team, NEC New Zealand will continue to thrive towards our goal of becoming one of the leading and most recognised ICT players in New Zealand.”
