SATO Appoints Tetsushi Kondo As Head of Europe
SATO, a leading global provider of Auto-ID solutions that empower workforces and streamline operations, has appointed Tetsushi Kondo as Head of Europe for the SATO Group.

As head of the region, Mr Kondo will be responsible for driving business in Europe, focusing on providing end-to-end solutions to pan-European customers.

Mr Kondo joined SATO in 2009, when he was tasked with restructuring SATO’s business in Europe. Since that time, he has played a major role in improving operational efficiencies across the region. Mr Kondo has held a variety of positions of increasing responsibility including Managing Director of SATO Germany, and most recently, Managing Director of SATO International Europe.

“Kondo-san has proven to be an amazing asset to our organization,” said Kaz Matsuyama, President & CEO of SATO Holdings. "He took on the monumental task of restructuring our European operations, and delivered excellent results. He knows the market well and I am confident that he will achieve substantial growth in sales in the coming year."

"I am both excited and honoured to take on this expanding role," said Tetsushi Kondo. "There is huge potential for growth in food and retail segments in key markets like France and Germany, we’ve got big plans for healthcare in the UK, and will be expanding our logistics business in Benelux and Eastern Europe. I also look forward to working with our channel partners and distributors across the region in marketing our new NX Series of printers."

New Head Of Food Crime At FSA
The FSA has appointed Andy Morling as the new Head of the Food Crime Unit.

Andy has extensive experience in intelligence and investigations, having spent the majority of his career working in these areas for HM Revenue & Customs, the Serious Fraud Office, the Serious and Organised Crime Agency, and latterly the National Crime Agency, where he was a Senior Intelligence Lead.

The Food Crime Unit was established at the end of last year. During its first phase the Unit is focusing on building intelligence and evidence of the risks and the nature of food fraud and food crime in the UK. The unit exchanges intelligence and priorities at local, regional and national levels with a range of enforcement partners.

Will Creswell, Head of Consumer Protection at the FSA, said: "Andy has a strong track record in intelligence and criminal investigation, so he has the ideal experience to lead the Food Crime Unit as it builds its intelligence-gathering network and collaborates with others to tackle criminal behaviour in the food chain."

Diago Man Ian Wright Takes Over Helm Of FDF
The Food and Drink Federation (FDF) has appointed Ian Wright to lead the organisation which represents the largest manufacturing sector in the UK.

Wright, who was Corporate Relations Director with major drinks company Diageo, will join the Federation before Easter.

He succeeds Melanie Leech who left the organisation just before Christmas to join the British Property Federation. Jim Moseley, a former President of the Federation who has been acting as Director General since Leech’s departure, will continue in the role until after Wright is installed.

President of the FDF, Dame Fiona Kendrick welcomed the appointment, saying: “Ian has huge experience in the food and drinks industry and is ideally qualified to champion the sector during a period of extraordinary change.

“Ian’s role will be to ensure that Government and stakeholders understand the importance of food and drink manufacturing, and support our industry to meet the changing needs of UK consumers in the future.

“Jim Moseley has injected real passion and commitment into the role. We are grateful that he has agreed to stay with FDF until the end of the month to ensure a seamless transition.”

Ian Wright has spent more than two decades in senior management positions with two of the UK's most important businesses Diageo and Boots The Chemists. For 14 years he was corporate relations director of Diageo. He was a member of the executive committee and responsible for representing the company to governments, NGOs and the media around the world.

He has also worked for other food businesses including Pillsbury, Burger King and Mars Confectionery. His career also includes spells in consultancy and politics. He is also a non-executive director of Mass1, a member of the advisory board of The Work Crowd and a trustee of both The WAVE Trust and Children on the Edge. Ian Wright, 56, is married with two children and lives in Rutland and London.

Commenting on his appointment, Ian said: “The food and drink industry is a national asset of which everyone in the UK should be justly proud. It is responsible for 400,000 jobs and with a £80 billion contribution to the economy the industry is critical to the UK. It's a privilege to be asked to lead its representative body and to be its advocate in the important challenges to come.”

FDF, based in Catherine Street, London, alongside its Scottish arm in Melville Street, Edinburgh, employs 65 people. It has about 300 members including some of the largest food manufacturers in the world.
