Japan Display Inc. Shifts to New Organization in July 2014

June 24, 2014 (Tokyo, Japan): Japan Display Inc. (President and CEO: Shuichi Otsuka, JDI), a leading global supplier of small- and medium-sized displays, will be restructuring its organization at the division level on July 1, 2014. This change has two purposes. One is to speed up the implementation of strategies and policies and the other is to strengthen the account management function. First, the cross-sectional function will be revised from a companywide perspective. Second, the Business Division and Sales Division functions will be reorganized to strengthen the account management function. And third, the post of Chief Operating Officer (COO), who takes charge of operations, will be introduced.

1. Account Management Function
Traditionally, JDI integrated the custom design function by application and by region of the Business Division with the customer-specific service function of the Sales Division in a cross-sectional manner. To swiftly respond to customers with a global presence, these functions will be organizationally integrated and placed under individual Business Units.

2. Chief Operating Officer (COO)
To effectively implement business strategies, product strategies, design standardization and value analysis or value engineering (VA/VE) from a companywide perspective to maintain the highest speed and lowest cost in the industry, JDI will be constructing a system under which all processes from product planning to mass production are under the sole control and responsibility of the COO.
