Optical module and component maker Opnext Inc of Eatontown, NJ, USA has promoted James (Atsushi) Horiuchi, VP of North America sales, to senior VP global sales (including North America, Europe and Asia Pacific). He replaces Christopher Lin, who has resigned to pursue other opportunities. The promotion expands Horiuchi’s responsibilities to bring additional focus on strategic initiatives relating to market growth and serving the global customer base.

“He was and continues to be a driving force behind our domestic and international expansion efforts,” says president and CEO Harry Bosco. “He will continue to further our sales initiatives in this new position.”

Horiuchi has been with Opnext since 2001, and has been instrumental in building the North America sales division. Horiuchi has more than 23 years experience in sales, R&D, manufacturing, and senior management in both Japan and the USA, including more than 10 years in the fiber-optics industry.
