Minoru Asada to lead Océ

Anton Schaaf steps down after 6 years as CEO

VENLO, 17 Dec—Looking towards new management as Océ moves into a new phase, Mr. Anton Schaaf has decided to step down as CEO.

Mr. Anton Schaaf has played an important role as CEO of Océ since 2012, with a focus on investing in new products and technologies. Océ wants to thank Mr. Schaaf for his valuable contribution and leadership in the past years and wishes him all the best.

With immediate effect, Mr. Minoru (Mick) Asada has been appointed CEO and Chairman of the Board of Océ, a Canon company.

With a Canon career dating back to 1985, Asada has been the acting COO of Océ since September 2018. He has a wealth of International experience having served in senior leadership positions both at Canon’s headquarters in Japan, and for over a decade in various roles in the United States.

“I am excited to have the opportunity to lead Océ at what is a very important time for the company”, says Asada. “In the short term, we will be focused on improving our performance and profitability whilst ensuring that we remain at the forefront of innovation in the commercial printing industry. I am confident that we have the foundations in place to continue to lead in both product excellence and customer service for many years to come.”
