Title: Electronics Executive (Retired)
Company: Toshiba America Consumer Products Inc.
Location: Hamburg, New Jersey, United States
Kiyoshi Hamada, a retired electronics executive at Toshiba America Consumer Products Inc., has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of business administration.
Now retired, Mr. Hamada enjoyed a fulfilling career in business administration that spanned for more than four decades, much of which he spent in the employ of the Toshiba Corporation. Initially joining the multinational conglomerate in 1957 as a member of the lamps, stamps and tubing division, he was later transferred to the overseas operations section and served as a liaison in New York City. After three years of excellence in this role, he became a manager at Toshiba America Inc. and, in 1970, assumed his penultimate role as the director of electronic data processing. Well regarded for his excellent work thus far, Mr. Hamada accepted an appointment in 1985 as the vice president of information systems in Wayne, New Jersey, through which he distinguished himself until his retirement in 1998.
Mr. Hamada’s exemplary performance in the field was born of his academic journey, during which time he studied economics at Keio University. Graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in 1957, he felt inspired to leverage his expertise in production-based cost control to join the Toshiba Corporation, largely due to their status as the premier company for mass production. Though he only rarely received the opportunity to work within his exact area of expertise, Mr. Hamada is gratified to have been dispatched to the United States in 1962 alongside a manager in order to open a new office for the company, which was the first of its kind in America. He was naturalized in 1996.
In a career suffused with highlights, Mr. Hamada is most proud to have met so many wonderful people, including professors and governmental personnel, during the length of his employment with Toshiba, during which time he attended numerous meetings, seminars and other such gatherings. Likewise, he has often seized the opportunity to join like-minded organizations. To wit, Mr. Hamada was elected as a fellow of the Society for Information Management and the Data Processing Management Association, as well as a member of the Japanese Communications Association, the Institution for Information Studies through the Aspen Institute, the American Management Association and the Association of Information Technology Professionals.
