Cloud solution provider Intermedia Cloud Communications named Makoto Omi as the new President of the company’s business operations in Japan.

Omi previously held the position of Senior Vice President of NEC’s unified communications division, and holds over 30 years of experience in the communications industry. As President, Omi will now be responsible for all aspects of the company's operations within the country, which includes sales, support, operations, business development, marketing, and strategic alliances.

"Intermedia offers a tightly integrated communications and collaboration platform with superior support and a partner-first go-to-market model that is ideal for the Japanese channel community.” commented Makoto Omi “I am honored to have joined such an innovative and impressive team, and, with the one-of-a-kind partnership that NEC and Intermedia have established, I look forward to working with NEC and its partners throughout Japan to grow our collective success in the cloud."

Last April, NEC and Intermedia formed an officially strategic partnership, with Intermedia being selected as NEC’s designated cloud communications provider. As part of the collaboration, the two companies worked together to create UCaaS, CCaaS, and other solutions under the NEC UNIVERGE BLUE® brand. Omi’s familiarity with the brand makes him an ideal ambassador for the solutions upcoming launch in Japan, which are currently only available in North American and Australian markets.

"I have worked closely with Makoto as we built our NEC partnership, and over the last year of working together, I have been impressed with his management and industry expertise, his significant accomplishments, and the well-earned respect that he has garnered throughout NEC and the Japanese business communications market," said Michael Gold. "Makoto has a deep understanding of what is necessary for us to win in NEC's largest market, and he has the abilities, leadership, and drive to make it happen. There is no better person to lead Intermedia's business in Japan and, needless to say, we are very excited to have him join us."
