NEC opening office in Washington, D.C. to better support government customers


NEC Corporation of America’s (NEC) new office in Washington, D.C. will be unveiled in an invitation only grand opening reception on May 19 to be attended by leading officials from the U.S. government, academia, and the private technology sector.

The reception will include welcome remarks by NEC Corporation of America’s president and CEO Shinsuke (Shin) Takahashi and a keynote talk by Jim Lewis, an internationally recognized expert on cyber security and senior vice president at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS).

The company says the significant new presence is a showcase for NEC’s industry leading identity solutions and biometric technology dedicated to serve its many government customers and partners.

“NEC is delighted to establish an office in our nation’s capital,” said Mr. Takahashi. “Staffed with engineering, project support and our targeted, US-Federal focused go-to-market teams, this office serves as a platform in supporting our existing customers in various Departments including the DHS (Department of Homeland Security), and DoD (Department of Defense), as well as pursuing new opportunities in this growing market.”

The new NEC office in D.C. is complemented and supported by NEC’s identity technology headquarters and Biometric Center of Excellence (COE), a showcase for NEC’s latest identity and biometric products, in Rancho Cordova, outside of Sacramento, California.
