Yuto Uchida has replaced Tetsunosuke Nagasawa as Vice President of KYB Europe GmbH.

Uchida first joined KYB in April 2003 straight after graduating from university. He has previously worked at KYB America from 2004 – 2009, then KYB Europe from 2010 – 2015, after which he returned to Tokyo headquarters as sales manager for KYB aftermarket business. In 2019 he moved to the Moscow office where he was director of KYB Eurasia.

Uchida is now based at KYB Europe’s Düsseldorf office and is responsible for aftermarket business in Europe.

KYB runs in Uchida’s family, as his father, mother, sister, uncle, grandfather and even grandfather-in-law have all worked for KYB!

On his return to KYB Europe, Uchida says “We are a strong team at KYB Europe. Our traditional company culture is to be ‘quick and aggressive’ and we will continue to embrace this way of working”.
