AURORA, IL — Mitutoyo America Corporation named a new president, Matt Dye, and a new executive vice president, Doug Adkins. The appointments replace Shigeyuki Sasaki, who for the past 10 years provided leadership as vice president, executive vice president, and most recently, as president. Sasaki has been with Mitutoyo for 40 years, and has been asked to join its team in Germany to support Mitutoyo European operations, assuming an advisory role.

Sasaki's "guidance has created a rich team environment with an emphasis on providing outstanding service to our customers throughout the United States and Canada," the company stated in press release. "During his tenure as president, Mr. Sasaki oversaw expansion in virtually every department, as well as the opening of a new corporate headquarters and regional offices."

For much of the past 20 years, Matt Dye and Doug Adkins have worked together to provide sales management and corporate leadership at MAC. They have assumed new roles within the company and continue to focus on the same core principles and beliefs of providing strong customer service with a dedicated team of highly trained professionals.

Matt Dye has been appointed president of Mitutoyo America Corporation. During his 21-year career, Dye has served as a distributor of Mitutoyo products and held various positions within Mitutoyo America. For the past five years, Dye has served as vice president of measuring instrument sales and technical services.

"During this time Dye emphasized the importance of customer service and worked to increase the skills and resources available to our sales division," the company wrote in a press release. "With a background in distribution and strong support of our front line sales partners, Matt will continue to emphasize growth in product performance, individual skill enhancement and the importance of superior customer support."

Doug Adkins has been appointed executive vice president of Mitutoyo America Corporation. Adkins’ career started in the United States Marine Corps and has continued for the past 25 years in the industrial distribution sector, with 20 years in several different capacities at MAC, including his most recent position as vice president of distributed products.

"With experience in the high-volume small tool and major instrument line at MAC, Adkins will continue to fully support the growth of sales in the United States through our established distributor network," the company stated.
