Fujitsu ‘Leverages Local’ by Adjusting Regional Structure

Fujitsu CEMEA&I

Munich, December 04, 2013

Fujitsu today announces that the next step in its globalization is to reorganize entities within its current Continental Europe, Middle East, Africa and India (CEMEA&I) region to ensure that it is optimally placed to ‘leverage local’ while ‘thinking globally.’

Until now, Fujitsu’s CEMEA&I region has operated with three separate geographic ‘clusters’ – Central Europe, Western Europe and Emerging Markets. To strengthen strategic alignment as it accelerates its globalization program, the company believes that customers currently served by its Emerging Markets cluster will benefit from closer ties with a larger and stronger Fujitsu entity.  As a result, the Emerging Markets cluster will be merged with the Western Europe cluster by April 1, 2014.

The resulting new region has been named Fujitsu Western & Eastern Europe, Middle East, India & Africa (WEMEIA). François Fleutiaux, currently Senior Vice President of the Western Europe cluster, will become CEO of the new entity. WEMEIA will become a full region in Fujitsu’s International Business structure. The current Central Europe cluster, headed by CEO Juergen Walter, has been previously established to regional status.  Both regions will report directly to Rod Vawdrey as President of Fujitsu International Business.

“As Fujitsu increasingly operates as a global entity, we must drive synergies and improve efficiency by leveraging our expertise around the world. I believe that the new Western & Eastern Europe, Middle East, India & Africa region will give the customers that it serves greater access to Fujitsu expertise, while enabling the company not only to ‘think globally,’ but to ‘act locally,’ for example by further developing and exporting our strengths in services and verticals.”
