Kyocera and KDDI founder Kazuo Inamori died on Aug. 24, Kyocera introduced on Tuesday. Inamori was 90.
Funeral companies had been held for his household, and a public memorial will happen at an as but unspecified date and place.
Inamori was born within the metropolis of Kagoshima, on Japan’s southern Kyushu Island. After graduating from Kagoshima University’s Faculty of Engineering, he labored as an workplace employee earlier than founding Kyoto Ceramic, now Kyocera, in 1959. He grew to become the corporate’s president in 1966.
Thanks to its “amoeba management,” during which earnings had been strictly managed by small teams and mergers and acquisitions (M&A) had been aggressively chased, Kyocera grew to become a worldwide firm concerned in every thing from digital parts to cellphones and photo voltaic cells to workplace gear.
Inamori entered the telecommunications market in 1984 with the institution of DDI, then stayed abreast of deregulatory strikes within the telecom sector. KDD ultimately merged with different gamers to kind the present KDDI.
