'We must now look forward and redefine who we are': Sunil Gupta, MD, Fuji Xerox Australia

Fuji Xerox has appointed Malaysian-based Sunil Gupta as managing director of Fuji Xerox Australia to replace Neil Whittaker, who left the job suddenly last month after an audit by Singapore HQ.

US-educated Gupta transferred to Malaysia in 2012 as president of Fuji Xerox Malaysia and chairman of the Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific Advisory Board.

Mr Gupta is an accomplished leader of global enterprises with experience across the United States and Asia, said Fuji Xerox in a statement.  He brings to the company a wealth of experience in building world-class teams and helping organisations through complex transformations.

Mr Gupta commenced his career with Xerox Corporation in 1979 and has held senior positions including President and CEO of Xerox International Partners based out of Palo Alto, California, President of FX Asia Pacific Malaysia Operations and board positions in related businesses.

He joins Fuji Xerox in Australia to lead the business toward the next stage of growth and support Australian businesses through their digital transformation journey.  

“I am honoured to accept this new opportunity to lead the team in Australia and look forward to showing Australian customers the value that we can provide them,” said Gupta.  “We must now look forward and redefine who we are both internally and externally. I am impressed by the talent throughout the organisation and am focused on getting back to basics to create a company that is easy for our valued customers to do business with, foster a winning and engaged culture internally and continue to carve out market share across all industries by delivering greater value.”

Gupta starts his job in July 2016, taking over from acting MD Masashi Honda – President, Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific – who flew in to steady the ship in the weeks following the abrupt departure of Whittaker.
