Tomokazu Hosoi was recently promoted to President of Fujitsu General America (FGAI) after serving for six months as Interim President & COO of the company.
Previously, Hosoi was VP of Business Development. His achievements since joining Fujitsu in 2001 include contributing to a doubling of company sales—twice—during his assignments to the U.S.
Hosoi’s vision for FGAI is to become an energy-saving solution provider.
“Currently, we’re selling reliable, super-efficient air conditioning and heat pump systems,” he shared.
“Yet we also aim to provide a holistic energy-savings solution for end-users while, at the same time, helping to secure a decarbonized future for local communities.”
Hosoi began his career in 2001 in International Sales at Fujitsu. He then held marketing roles at FGAI between 2005 and 2011. Returning to Japan, he became section manager for North and South America and Oceania, a role he held for four years. In 2015, he returned to NJ-based FGAI, concluding those years as VP of Business Development. During this time, he initiated alliances with U.S. companies such as Rheem, Ventacity Systems and Westinghouse. These collaborations aimed to expand not only FGAI’s ductless systems core business, but also broader lineups, including unitary and ventilation systems.
Hosoi earned a BS degree in English Linguistics at Nanzan University in 2001; he also attended California State University, Fullerton.
