Canon New Zealand's managing director, Craig Manson, has been appointed to the position of senior general manager, marketing of Canon Australia.
Manson will continue in his MD role until April 1 and will then relocate to Sydney. Meanwhile, Canon Oceania is searching for a replacement to fill the New Zealand position.
Canon says the newly created Australian position signals a shift towards a more customer and channel focused business model.
According to returns filed with the Companies Office, Canon had $132 million in New Zealand revenue for the year ended December 2007.
