In 1957, Kiyoshi Hamada received his BA in economics from Keio University, and then jumped into the realm of electronics and technology. Following his college graduation, Mr. Hamada was focused on finding a job that was related directly to what he studied - and that lead him to the Toshiba Corporation. He started in the lamp and tube division of the company, and later found himself in overseas operations. This assignment changed the course of his career at Toshiba, which he no longer was able to utilize his knowledge developed at college, a particular theory of investment based on cost control and production management, challenging the traditional accounting system to be more effective and productive.
Mr. Hamada immigrated to the U.S. in 1962 to represent the Toshiba brand to a new international audience. He was promoted to New York City as a liaison, manager, director of electronic data processing and then vice president of information systems. Notably, Mr. Hamada came to open the first Toshiba's official office in the U.S. with only one other manager. He traveled many domestic locations visiting major US electronics/appliances manufacturers to exchange technical/engineering information with clients on behalf of various division of Toshiba Corp. in order to promote business opportunity. The business grew to many more business entities. Mr. Hamada introduced computer systems for the first time to Toshiba America, Inc., when U.S. business operations needed its efficiency by replacing the manual process being practiced in the office. As technological advancement continued, his pursuit evolved from batch processing to on-line operation utilizing dial-up, Tl, packet network, frame-relay and internet as well as client server with application programs developed mostly in house and system implementation suitable to those technologies and demand from internal/external users (domestic and international). His dedication to be responsible for Information Systems at Toshiba America, Inc., and then Toshiba America Consumer Products, Inc., continued until his retirement in 1998.
Outside of work, Mr. Hamada was involved in multiple memberships related to his passion for technology. He was a fellow of the Society for Information Management and a member of the Association of Information Technology Professionals, the Japan-U.S. Communications Association and the American Management Association. He was an alumnus of the Institute for Information Studies at the Aspen Institute.
Mr. Hamada is the author of "KH in Seven Decades" and his hobbies include tennis, music and woodworking. Mr. Hamada married to Charlotte Ann Sheffield from Chautauqua County, NY in 1967 and furthermore naturalized in 1996. He was a Trustee (Parliamentarian, Chairmanship of Administration and Finance committees) of Sussex County (NJ) Historical Society for 5 years. During his term, he created the Sussex County Historic Sites map as the first of its kind - comprehensive countywide location of historic sites and historic description of 24 municipalities. Mr. Hamada is an active member of Vernon Township Rotary Club. His book and map are now registered in the Library of Congress.
