Revolabs co-founder and CEO JP Carney is to retire from his position as company CEO, to be succeeded by Masanori ‘Mick’ Kamihara.

Mick KamiharaSince founding Revolabs, Carney has set the strategic and product direction of the company, enabling the company to become a leading global unified communications provider, and for its acquisition by Yamaha Corporation in 2014.

‘It has been three years since the acquisition, and during that time, Revolabs has solidly positioned itself to continue executing its strategy for growth, which has given me the opportunity to step down personally and professionally,’ Carney says. ‘Yamaha is committed to and intently focused on the UC space, as demonstrated by our first joint audio video solution, the CS-700, which carries the Yamaha brand. Revolabs has strong strategic partnerships, an innovative roadmap for the future, and with Mick assuming the CEO role, Yamaha will unify their UC assets under one leadership to continue building into the future.’

Kamihara joined the Yamaha Corporation as producer for Music Production products in 2008, moving to Yamaha’s Professional Audio Business group in 2010 where he led the strategy and product planning of the company’s Commercial Install Sound products for retail/BGM applications.

Moving to Revolalbs from his present post as Group Manager Yamaha Corporation’s Communication System Development Group, Kamihara says: ‘I have had the distinct pleasure and opportunity to work with JP and the Revolabs management team. They have impressed me with their passion for delivering innovative solutions that solve their customers’ needs and their deeply rooted knowledge for building a network of strategic partners to ensure the best possible UC experience necessary in today’s modern collaborative environment. As part of Yamaha’s UC strategy and the Yamaha brand, we will continue to deliver exceptional support and quality to those customers and partners worldwide.’

Carney will remain with the company through the transition period.
