Christie has announced Hideaki Onishi as its new chairman and CEO. With more than 30 years of management experience in various positions within the Ushio, Inc. group (parent company of Christie) we understand that he will begin his role immediately.
Hideaki began working for Ushio in 1989. Known for a strong aptitude in sales, he has also continued to demonstrate impressive management skills throughout his career. He has a broad and extensive range of experience in various roles, having worked at Ushio Lighting, Taiwan Ushio Lighting, Adtech Engineering, Ushio Asia Pacific (Singapore), Vietnam, Thailand and Ushio Europe. Among many highlights, Hideaki was entrusted with guiding the manufacture and sales of the printed circuit board (PCB) exposure machines that Ushio acquired in their 2012 acquisition of ADTEC Engineering. The next five years saw the business reach a position of strength, which culminated in his appointment as president of Ushio Asia Pacific in 2016. Hideaki joins Christie from his previous role as president of Ushio Europe.
