NEC Australia today announced it will enter its FY2022 with a new CEO at the helm.

After more than two years leading NEC in Australia and New Zealand, NEC ANZ President & CEO, Mitsuhiro Murooka will depart to take up a new role as Senior Vice President & Chief Commercial Officer, based in NEC Corporation Headquarters in Tokyo.

From 1st April 2022, current Chairperson Mike Mrdak will step into the role of Executive Chair & CEO - ANZ.

Mr Murooka said the change in leadership will help continue NEC’s growth and drive its strategy forward.

“The last two and a half years NEC has made excellent progress and seen substantial growth across our business. We have solidified our commitment to the development of Western Sydney through various MoU partnerships, strengthened our relationship with key government and enterprise customers and expanded our innovative, market leading product offerings,” he said.

“Throughout this time Mike has played a key role in developing NEC’s long-term growth strategy, and I am delighted he will continue to lead NEC Australia and New Zealand into the future.”
