New boss for Mitsubishi Motors Australia

John Signoriello new Aussie boss

Sales are on the increase and now Mitsubishi welcomes a new local President and CEO.

28-year veteran with Mitsubishi Motors, John Signoriello, will take the reins of the Aussie operations from the 1st of July.

Replacing Mutsuhiro Oshikiri, who’s heading to Mitsubishi Motors Philippines, Mr Signoriello has most recently held the Deputy Director of Marketing position with the car company.

Moving from the Philippines to Australia will be Yoshiaki Kato and he will assume the role of Chief Executive Coordinator, working alongside Mr Signoriello.

President and Chief Executive of Mitsubishi Motors, Osamu Masuko, tells us the moves are good for both operations.

“We are strengthening and diversifying our management team around the world, ensuring that we seize future growth opportunities in important markets such as the Philippines and Australia.”

Mr Signoriello takes the reins of Mitsubishi in Australia at a good time – sales in 2017 are up 6.5% on the same period last year.

While VFACTS data shows models like the Pajero Sport (+ 76.2%), Outlander (+41.1%) and ASX (+3.0%) are all finding larger numbers of Australian SUV/4×4 buyers.
