With the turnover happening quite soon, we’re excited to see what Mr. Utsumi can bring to the table with his tenure as Suzuki Philippines’ new president. No announcements have been made yet about his plans to move the company forward, however one thing is for certain, a warm welcome is in store when he assumes his new post. 2019 is looking good for Suzuki so far. Apart from a new president, new models are making their way into the hands of dealers and consumers. Coming off of the momentum that the previous president has started, it will be exciting to see how much more is in store for Philippine car buyers in the coming months as Mr. Akira Ustumi assumes his post and starts making waves in the industry.
