Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. welcomed Mr. Eigo Konya as president and CEO effective immediately. After three and a half successful years leading KMC to industry-leading retail and market share growth, Mr. Yoshi Tamura has returned to Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. in Japan.

Mr. Konya first joined KMC from 2001 to 2007, contributing to record sales revenues in the U.S., which led to his appointment as general manager of Kawasaki Motors Shanghai, Ltd. Mr. Konya led the team that built the Kawasaki brand in mainland China, establishing the company, developing the sales structure and strategy, growing the dealer network and emerging annual revenue over a five year period.

Returning to KMC, Mr. Konya is excited to continue the success the company has achieved in recent years and looks to continue growing retail sales and market share in the U.S.

“It is a very exciting time to return to KMC,” said Mr. Konya. “Kawasaki has seen fantastic retail growth in the United States thanks to the best dealer network in the industry and new, exciting models each year. I look forward to leading such a top-tier company.”

Mr. Konya will address the U.S. dealer network at the Kawasaki Dealer Business Meeting, Oct. 7-12, 2019, in Palm Desert, CA, where Kawasaki will launch multiple new models for 2020.
