There's a new boss handling Isuzu Philippines Corporation. IPC officially introduced Tetsuya Fujita, replacing Noboru Murakami as president of the company.

With his broad involvement in international sales and operations, Fujita accepted the challenge of maintaining IPC’s long reign as the number-one truck brand in the country. He intends to do this by continuing to expand and improve the dealer network, as well as maintaining IPC’s strong relationship with customers by providing significant contributions to their business. Not only that, but he also promised to keep steering the company towards a more sustainable and greener path by further cultivating the Road to Progress vision that Murakami kicked off during his term.
“As the leading truck brand in the industry, we will continue innovating new products that will assist in the progress of the country while displaying more responsibility to the society and the environment through our Road to Progress vision,” said new IPC president Fujita.
