Farewell to Mitsuteru Yageta

Farewell to Mitsuteru Yageta

Mitsuteru Yageta, group chief financial officer (CFO) of Isuzu Motors South Africa, is laying down his tools after an incredible 40 years at the company! Yageta (64) was deployed by Isuzu Japan as an expatriate at Isuzu Motors South Africa in 2018 as the group CFO after Isuzu Motors Limited of Japan acquired the Isuzu manufacturing plant and related operations from General Motors Company.

Yageta was based in Port Elizabeth and established a solid foundation for the Japanese manufacturer in South Africa. His wealth of knowledge and experience spans over four decades and includes stints in product powertrain planning, sales and finance. He has worked in various international markets and will now relocate to Japan.

Yageta says he enjoyed his stay in Port Elizabeth and will miss the city and his local colleagues. “We adapted well and most of all I enjoyed playing golf over weekends,” he says with a smile.

Yageta concludes his assignment at Isuzu Motors South Africa at the end of March and will be succeeded by Michiyuki Miura. Miura joins Isuzu Motors South Africa after working in international markets such as Thailand and Indonesia.
