Musical Chairs End With Gary Lee Becoming CFO of Canon India

Japanese imaging and optical multinational Canon has appointed Gary Lee as its Chief Financial Officer and Vice President of Canon India. He replaces Anuj Aggarwal, who was named the unit’s CFO in 2007 and has now been reassigned as Vice President of Canon Marketing Philippines – replacing Lee.

The rotation is part of Canon Inc.’s desire to “elevate its leadership across geographies and cultivate globally competent human resources,” said the company, by “examining and identifying professionals for senior management positions and developing the skills of these future leaders by rotating them through key positions overseas.”

Lee has more than 20 years of experience in accounting, IT and finance. “With his strong and diverse experience, he has helped improve the company’s operation efficiency by integrating information technologies into different business operations, and has led his team to several significant accomplishments,” said Canon Inc.
