Stewart Mitchell, who spent the past five years at the Funai Corporation—the North American sales and marketing company for consumer electronics products manufactured by their parent company, Funai Electric Co., out of Japan—announced that he will be leaving the company. He most recently was the senior vice president of sales and marketing for the company.
Mitchell joined Funai in August 2010 and was responsible for all of the sales and marketing for Magnavox, Emerson, and Sanyo TV/Video business. From 2011 through 2014, Funai achieved the number-three TV unit market share in North America (DisplaySearch combining all brands). And this past year he helped launch the Kodak Verite printers in the U.S. and Canadian markets.
