He takes the helm from Koji Nakamura who has returned to Japan to assume his new role as Executive Officer in the Isuzu International Business Division.
Okazoe 49, who hails from Fukuoka, holds a law degree from Kyushu University. He began his involvement with Isuzu Motors Limited 26 years ago, starting his career in the company’s Japanese Business Management Department in 1996.
Since then, he has served in various positions involving corporate and sales planning with international experience garnered in Isuzu Commercial Truck of America, Isuzu Motors India and Isuzu Motors Co Thailand.

Our Isuzu lorries have reigned as the top-selling light duty trucks for the past decade and the Number One truck brand for the last eight consecutive years. Our D-Max has also gained tremendous popularity within the community, forging a positive reputation for dependable and efficient performance.
“I hope to build on this strong reputation and continue to develop a better environment for users and owners through a stronger and more customer-oriented sales and after-sales network,” said Okazoe.
