Telehouse today announced the appointment of Satoru Manabe as the new president and CEO of Telehouse America and KDDI America.
Satoru Manabe will replace Masaaki Nakanishi, who will retire as the president and chief executive officer of Telehouse America and KDDI America.
Manabe will oversee activities and strategies for Telehouse America and KDDI America, as well as the companies’ US subsidiaries, Locus and Total Call.
During Masaaki Nakanishi’s tenure in the United States, KDDI and Telehouse America have seen growth with US-based companies expanding Data Center and Systems Integration services both here and abroad.
It is expected that Manabe’s success in business operations in markets such as China will enhance our companies’ reputation as a leading global colocation and network provider.
Satoru Manabe is a KDDI veteran. He joined KDDI in 1984.
From 2005 to 2007, he served as president of KDDI China, and started Telehouse China in Beijing, and Telehouse China in Shanghai. From 2007 to 2010, he oversaw a KDDI and China Telecom joint venture company before heading the account management team for Toyota Motor and its group companies from 2010-2014.
