In his current position as the Director of Customer Services at Getac, Mr. Suzuki is responsible for all technical services and customer programs and has led improvements in customer satisfaction and cost management.

Previously, he was Vice President of Client Services at Alorica, responsible for designing and integrating strategic services for retail and OEM/ODM accounts, including Sam's Club, Costco, VIZIO, Assurant, Asia Audio Technologies and Am Tran.

As Senior Director of Retail and Direct Services at Gateway, Mr. Suzuki was responsible for customer care services in the U.S. and Canada.
