Lenovo's new APAC leadership set to strengthen regional growth


Lenovo has announced new leadership roles in the Asia Pacific region to ensure that it can fulfil its vision of “smarter technology for all.”

Lenovo has made new appointments to its Asia Pacific leadership team to drive continued business growth as the company expands its offerings in the region.

Amar Babu, president, Lenovo Asia Pacific, notes: “As our customers continue their transformation journeys, in their businesses, education, and personal lives, we aim to support them with the full resources of Lenovo in technology hardware, solutions, and services.”

“Establishing the right team in place to make this happen will ensure that we can deliver on this promise and bring our vision—smarter technology for all—to life”, Babu adds.

Prashanth Mani has assumed leadership of Lenovo’s mobile business group in Asia Pacific. Building on the successful growth achieved during the past year, he will leverage the product portfolio under the Motorola brand, and take advantage of new opportunities offered by 5G, Lenovo says.

Takeshi Okuma has taken up the role of CEO for Fujitsu Client Computing Limited (FCCL), a joint venture established in 2017 by Lenovo, Fujitsu, and the Development Bank of Japan. He succeeds Kuniaki Saito, who has been appointed Chairman of FCCL.

Lenovo has also made changes within the Intelligent Device Group in Asia Pacific:

Eddie Ang has been appointed head of the relationship segment, overseeing key corporate and public sector business relationships across the region, as well as leading the original equipment manufacturer, profit manager, and workstation teams. Eddie succeeds Stuart King, who is now the worldwide education lead at Lenovo.

Tony Lee has succeeded Takeshi Okuma as leader of the Lenovo small and medium business segment, responsible for driving growth across Lenovo's expanding portfolio from PCs, workstations, tablets, smart devices to services and solutions. He will also be responsible for the options, product, visual and mid-market teams.
