Roland Corp. appoint Raison as new CEO

Posted on: Wednesday 2nd of March 2022

Gordon RaisonRoland Corporation has announced plans to appoint Gordon Raison as the new CEO and representative director. He will succeed Jun-ichi Miki in a historic move that will be confirmed following approval during the ordinary general shareholders meeting on March 30th, 2022 and a subsequent board of directors meeting.
As Roland celebrates its 50th anniversary, British national Raison will become the Corporation’s first European CEO and representative director, having joined as head of Roland’s European team in September 2013, working alongside Jun-ichi Miki to aid in the company’s restructuring and reform, following financial problems that stemmed from the global financial crisis in 2008, and that would eventually see it delisted from the First Section of the five-tier Tokyo Stock Exchange in 2014 (it would return in late 2020). Raison rose to become CEO of the Overseas Unit by 2017, later moving on to his most recent role as director. During this time, Raison led sales and marketing efforts across the company aiding in the brand’s growth – and will look to leverage his decades of marketing, sales, and finance experience to guide Roland into this new phase.
“I sincerely appreciate the trust given by the Nomination and Remuneration Committee, as well as the Board of Directors, and I am thrilled to be afforded this opportunity,” said Raison.
