Eisaku Mori, a nearly 30-year veteran executive affiliated with various branches of Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. (KHI), has been appointed executive vice president of Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. (KMC), and also becomes general manager of KHI’s General Purpose Engine Division with international responsibilities.  Mori will retain his title as general manager of KMC Research and Development at the company’s R&D Center attached to its Engines Division in Grand Rapids, Mich.

Many of the leadership and operational functions Mori performs while managing the R&D Center will be assumed by Dave Sugden, newly promoted to executive director of research and

development at the KMC Engines Division.  He came to Kawasaki last year and oversees a renovated R&D facility that has been increasing its staffing since relocating from former facilities at the Maryville, Mo. manufacturing plant of Kawasaki Motors Manufacturing Corp., U.S.A. Sugden’s expanded role will allow Mori to concentrate on furthering corporate goals both in the U.S. and abroad.

First joining KHI in 1989, Mori has held numerous posts related to both general purpose engines and consumer products.  His various assignments brought him to the KMC Engines Division R&D post in 2015. Mori’s leadership of the relocation from Missouri saw the R&D Center undertake significant staffing increases focused in the areas of technology, calibration, electrical, and testing.
