Fuji taps Murphy veep/G.M.

Japanese film giant Fuji Photo Film USA has named Fuji USA veteran Mark Murphy its new veep/G.M. to head the rapidly expanding pro film products division, and announced the retirement of the man who spearheaded Fuji’s assault into pro film products, Hap Parker.

Fuji Photo Film USA president Osamu Inoue, to whom Murphy will report, noted that both men have had “a long and dedicated career with Fujifilm,” and that Murphy “will provide a valued contribution to the continued growth of our motion picture business.”

Parker, who becomes a consultant to the company after his official retirement, helped Fuji establish a beachhead in the motion picture biz in the late 1980s, seeing an opportunity in independent and off-lot production. Fuji’s share of the stock business has grown exponentially since then, though it remains in second place next to industry linchpin Kodak.

Murphy has been with Fujifilm since 1976, starting as a sales rep and moving up the executive ranks. He was most recently regional veep/Western Region for the company’s consumer markets division, and will continue to be based in the company’s Cypress headquarters.
