New Managing Director at Instrument Systems

On 2 April 2024 the position of the Managing Director passed from Yasumasa Kuboyama to Dr. Yuta Yamanoi, who together with CEO Dr. Markus Ehbrecht form the new Instrument Systems management team.

Dr. Yuta Yamanoi has distinguished himself through more than two decades of professional experience in the field of color and light measurement technology. After eight years in the development department at Konica Minolta Sensing in Japan, in 2016 he transferred to Konica Minolta Sensing Americas Inc. as Business Development Manager. In this capacity he also took over the support of key account customers in the IT segment. Most recently, he was Senior Manager for Strategic Planning in Light & Display and Color & Appearance division of Konica Minolta Sensing Business Unit in Japan. As a scientist with a PhD in “Earth and Space Sciences” he thus disposes of extensive and highly relevant know-how in the business area of the wholly-owned Konica Minolta subsidiary Instrument Systems.

In his new role, over the next few years he will continue to promote the cooperation between the Konica Minolta subsidiaries of the Sensing Business Unit with their Light & Display and Color & Appearance division, which also includes Instrument Systems. Dr. Markus Ehbrecht welcomes Dr. Yuta Yamanoi to his new position. In the course of the regular change in the double leadership he is looking forward to strengthening the company together with Dr. Yuta Yamanoi for the volatile market situation, creating new added value for the customers.

The departing Yasumasa Kuboyama has been Managing Director of Instrument Systems in Germany since April 2023 and is now taking over a new department in Konica Minolta Sensing business unit in Japan.
