NMI also welcomes Dr. Hideaki Okamoto as the new Managing Director. Kosawa’s success in accomplishing the integration of Metris into Nikon, along with his strong strategic management over the last several years resulted in his return to Japan with new and even more significant responsibilities. “I feel confident that the team we have in place is the best of the best, and that they will continue the success we’ve achieved,” says Kosawa. In little more than five years, Kosawa has ascended from Vice-President of Marketing for Nikon Metrology, Inc., to Managing Director, and now to even greater heights at Nikon Corporate.
