Just prior to the end of 2023, Fujitsu General America promoted Tomokazu Hosoi President, after serving for six months as interim president and chief operating officer of the company.
For seven years prior to his role as interim president and COO, Hosoi was vice president of business development. His achievements since joining Fujitsu in 2001 include contributing to a doubling of company sales twice during his assignments to the U.S.
“Our real strengths lie in our customer-first and family-like company culture,” stated Hosoi. “We seek to enhance our support for customers, closely measuring our performance as we strive for operational excellence.
“Fujitsu’s widely recognized for its superb support and training for our contractor customers,” he added. “We remain fully committed to this.”
Hosoi’s vision for FGAI is to become an energy saving solution provider. “Currently, we're selling reliable, super-efficient air conditioning and heat pump systems. Yet we also aim to provide a holistic energy-savings solution for end-users while, at the same time, helping to secure a decarbonized future for local communities.”
Hosoi began his career in 2001 in international sales at Fujitsu. He then held marketing roles at FGAI between 2005 and 2011. Returning to Japan, he became section manager for North and South America and Oceania, a role he held for four years. In 2015, he returned to NJ-based FGAI, concluding those years as VP of business development. During this time, he initiated alliances with US companies such as Rheem, Ventacity Systems, and Westinghouse. These collaborations aimed to expand not only FGAI’s ductless systems core business, but also broader lineups, including unitary and ventilation systems.
Hosoi earned a BS degree in English Linguistics at Nanzan University in 2001; he also attended California State University, Fullerton.
