Canon Marketing Philippines, Inc. (CMPI) has recently announced the appointment of Lim Kok Hin as the company’s new President and Chief Executive Officer. Lim officially assumed the position last July 1, 2014.
Having years of expertise in his portfolio and being with Canon for more than twenty years, Lim, held several management positions at Canon Malaysia from 1991 until 2006, when he was promoted as Senior Director of Business Imaging Solutions (BIS) at Canon Singapore Pte. Ltd. (CSPL). He became the Vice President of the BIS group for Southeast Asia in 2011, with overall responsibility for the Sales and Marketing of business imaging hardware and software solutions across 18 countries; these including subsidiaries in India, Malaysia, Thailand, and a representative office in Vietnam. In addition, Lim also served as the head of CSPL Domestic Business Operations and was in charge of the overall growth, sales, marketing and services of the Consumer Imaging & Information Products (CII) and BIS groups for the Singapore market.
Notably, one of Lim’s greatest feats is spearheading the launch of The Ambition Gap in 2010. This program looks to enable both individuals and companies become more productive through opportunities provided by technology, and further create a bridge between expectations and actual goals and ambitions.
The 30-year Canon veteran holds a degree in Economics from the University of Bradford in the United Kingdom. He joins Canon Philippines with an extensive, high level industry experience vital to provide leadership and strategic vision that would take CMPI to great lengths.
