SAN CARLOS, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 16, 2013) - Alliance Memory today announced that it has bolstered support for its customers in Japan with the appointment of Ted Kasahara as country manager. In his new role, Mr. Kasahara is responsible for developing and maintaining strong relationships with Alliance Memory's customers in the Japanese market.

"We've been very successful in penetrating the Japan market with our SRAM and synchronous DRAM products over the past few years, and the addition of Ted to our team is a key step in maintaining the levels of service and support that our customers rely on," said Dan Gilbert, vice president of sales at Alliance Memory. "With the depth of his industry knowledge and experience in the Japanese market, he will provide an invaluable resource for our existing customers while allowing us to develop new relationships throughout the country."

"I worked for Alliance Semiconductor before Alliance Memory acquired its fast asynchronous product line, so I'm familiar with the technology and how it meets the needs of the Japanese market," said Mr. Kasahara.
