Canon U.S.A. announced that president and chief executive officer Joe Adachi has been promoted to senior managing director, while executive vice president, chief administrative officer and general counsel Seymour Liebman was appointed to executive officer of Canon. Both executives will continue their leadership posts at Canon U.S.A. in addition to their expanded roles with Canon.

Adachi joined the company in 1970 and worked at Canon U.S.A. from 1978 through 1992. In 1998, Adachi was named president of Canon Canada, where he led the company through the transition from analog to digital products and revitalized the distribution channels for the company's office imaging systems operation. He was appointed president and CEO of Canon China in 2001. While there, he led Canon's Asian operations during a time of growth throughout the region.

Adachi rejoined Canon U.S.A. in 2005 to take on the role of president and CEO, overseeing operations for all Canon America companies.

Liebman has been an integral part of shaping the direction of Canon U.S.A. since he joined the company more than 35 years ago as a manager in the accounting division. During his tenure at Canon U.S.A., Liebman has been instrumental in helping the company transform from a provider of consumer and business analog products to a leader in digital imaging solutions for consumer, businesses, and industrial markets, such as medical imaging, broadcast, and video. Liebman is the first non-Japanese Canon executive honored with this appointment. In his current position, Liebman is responsible for legal affairs and corporate administration functions for Canon Americas.

In addition to Adachi and Liebman, Mark Haga, executive vice president and chief financial officer, Canon U.S.A., is also an executive officer, appointed in 2008.
