Sharp Promotes Scaglione
Sharp Electronics announced last week that Bob Scaglione has been promoted to the position of chief marketing officer. Scaglione was previously senior vice president and group manager for Sharp Electronics Marketing Co.
Scaglione, the company said, will oversee "a new business development team to promote opportunities, cross-pollination, and cooperation across business units and categories to further strengthen the Sharp brand in the U.S." He will report to Sharp's CEO, Kozo Takahashi.
"Bob's record of great accomplishment and experience in audio/video, television and CE products in general makes him ideally suited to taking a larger leadership role that is more central to the company's future success," Takahashi said in a statement. "He has proven himself a strong leader and innovative thinker time and again over his 21 years with Sharp. We are very fortunate to be able to appoint him to this position."
