Matsuura USA Appoints Acting President

Billy Bogue

Matsuura USA has announced the planned retirement of President David Hudson after 10 years with the organization. Current Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Billy Bogue, will succeed Hudson as acting President.

With a career spanning nearly 40 years, Bogue is a seasoned global business leader, joining Matsuura in 2021 as national sales manager. Bogue was quickly promoted to Vice President of Sales and Marketing, where he maintains a deep passion for solving manufacturing challenges and an unwavering focus on Matsuura's customers.

"We have every confidence in Billy as he takes on the role and responsibilities of acting President, which is the result of a thoughtful and deliberate long-term succession planning process. Billy brings a wealth of strategic and executive leadership experience, and we are pleased to transition the role of acting President to Billy," said Katsutoshi Matsuura, President of Matsuura Corporation.

"I am honored to lead this exceptional company and look forward to working closely with the board, management and team members to build on the initiatives underway to drive strong and sustainable growth and create additional value for our customers," Bogue said.

"Billy is a passionate and visionary leader with an engaging leadership style, a customer-first approach and proficiency in building and leading teams," Matsuura added. "He has played a key role in Matsuura's growth and success, and we are pleased to have appointed a leader of Billy's caliber to the role of acting President."

Bogue holds a master of business administration degree from Saint Leo University and a Bachelor of Science in business administration from Columbia College.

"I am proud of all we have accomplished at Matsuura USA and of the talented and dedicated people I have had the pleasure to work alongside," said Hudson. "It has been a huge privilege to have the opportunity to lead this great company. However, I am now devoting more time to my family and passions outside the workplace. I remain committed to working closely with the board and Matsuura's acting President, Billy Bogue, for a smooth transition."

"On behalf of Matsuura, I want to thank David for his years of service to Matsuura, his outstanding leadership and notably his commitment to our customers, distributor partners and our employees," said Matsuura.
