Kuniaki Bannai | Toshiba & Sony Account Manager

Meet Kuniaki Bannai, our Toshiba and Sony Account Manager in Japan who holds his bachelor’s degree of Math from Tokyo University of Science.

Originally from the Fukushima Prefecture of Japan located in the Tōhoku region on the island of Honshu, Kuniaki began working in the semiconductor industry in Japan in 1986 for Advantest as a Senior Software Engineer. In 1991, he moved to San Diego for joint development by Advantest and Symtek (a San Diego company).

In 1997, Kuniaki was hired on at Cymer as Technical Support.

“My favorite part about Cymer is the upbeat mood of the company and San Diego’s amazing weather!”

Outside of work, Kuniaki enjoys spending time with his friends and golfing.
