Fuji’s first job with Nipro was as a project team member in the development of Nipro’s first PTCA balloon catheter. Five years later, he transferred to Nipro’s Medical Division, to manage the development of the Japan vascular market. This was the first of several increasingly important roles in marketing, business development and sales expansion. Over the years, Fuji has been responsible for sales and marketing in Asia, the Middle East, Australia, New Zealand and Africa. In 2013, Fuji was promoted to Deputy General Manager at Nipro’s International Division’s Sales Department, where he was responsible for expanding sales and marketing for the global market. Two years later he became Deputy General Manager of Business Strategy for Nipro’s Vascular Business Division, responsible for expanding Nipro's vascular business globally.
When Infraredx joined the Nipro family, Fuji became President and CEO of Infraredx. In this position, he was “humbled to become a great listener” and to focus on teamwork. “A high functioning team will lead to great success, and we have achieved great success by fostering one another’s strengths.” His willingness to focus more on others’ strengths led to his newest role as General Manager of Nipro’s Vascular Business Division.
Fuji has maintained his passion for the Nipro philosophy of developing “innovative, value-added products and technologies that improve patient outcomes and healthcare worldwide.” “The more we are able to improve our products, the better the tools physicians have to help people with heart disease now and in the future.”
We cannot change the past, but we can reshape the future.
