SYDNEY, 31 July 2019 – FUJIFILM Australia is making some changes within its Electronic Imaging Division as a result of the division’s GM Frank Bite leaving the company due to personal and family health reasons.
Bite was a key member of the FUJIFILM Australia team having joined the company in 2006 as National Business Manager and then going on to become Digital Imaging Market Manager, Divisional Manager and eventually General Manager of the EI division. In his 13 years at FUJIFILM Australia he contributed to and oversaw the major growth of the EI business through innovative, creative marketing and social media campaigns. He was also well known for the strong industry relationships he created, developed and grew in traditional photographic channels, retail and emerging areas such as professional cinematography.
FUJIFILM Australia’s CEO Tyler Yanase said, “Sadly for Frank an illness within his immediate family has now meant he can no longer continue in his role at FUJIFILM Australia with all the responsibilities and travel commitments that are required so, with great regret, he tendered his resignation in order to be with his family at this sensitive time.”
As a result Alex Zitser, in addition to his role as National Product and Marketing Manager, will now also take on additional responsibilities as acting Divisional Manager. The rest of the EI team consisting of Duncan Hyde, Kevin Cooper, Warwick Williams, Leigh Diprose, Will Anlezark and Neil Pash remain unchanged.
