Tsuda currently serves as the Chairman of the Board for Yaskawa Electric Corporation, a leading Japanese robot manufacturing company. Tsuda has worked for the company since 1976, quickly joining after he obtained a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Tokyo Institute of Technology.

The 66 year-old will replace the previous President Joe Gemma who served in role since 2015.

“The presidency of Joe Gemma followed the mission, to deliver a better understanding about what drives the rapidly changing world of robotics,” said Tsuda. “He did a great job by communicating with our many stakeholders around the Globe.”

Wyatt is also a leading name, currently acting as the Global Head of Marketing & Sales for ABB’s robotics unit.

“As its new President it is my pleasure to proceed with his work,” Tsuda continued. “Together with the new Vice President, Steven Wyatt, I will carry his mission forward - for the International Federation of Robotics.”
