A Message from Team

For over sixty years, Hitachi has provided Americans with cutting-edge technology to make their everyday lives safer, smarter, and more convenient. Whether it’s building the commuter trains to help people get from point A to point B, making manufacturing more efficient and sustainable using data analytics and upgrading the power grid, helping farmers overcome challenges with crop size and water scarcity, or introducing students to the world of STEM through electron microscopes, Hitachi has always been a leader in imagining the future of society–and making it a reality.

Part of the process of creating the future we want is collaborating with partners who can make it happen. Hitachi’s Government Relations team is keenly aware of this, which is why we build strong relationships with policymakers at all levels of government to anticipate and address whatever challenges and opportunities come our way. Engagement between the public and private sectors is key to solving society’s most pressing challenges, and we are committed to working together with the government to move Hitachi’s business forward in the United States.

Through our digital technologies, Hitachi is transforming the physical, social, and economic infrastructure of the United States. I am proud to lead a team that understands our strengths and communicates them to our partners in state and federal governments. Together as One Hitachi, we can achieve a sustainable and equitable future for all.
