Verbatim, the leading data storage company and part of the Mitsubishi Chemical Group, has appointed Clive Alberts as President for its EUMEA operation. The position was previously held by Hidetaka Yabe who returns to Tokyo, Japan to undertake a General Manager’s role within the Corporate Marketing Department at Mitsubishi Chemical Corp.
Alberts (45) previously worked for Freecom (2001 – 2010) as Head of Sales and Marketing for the DACH and CEE region (Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Central and East Europe).
