Company Background

In 2010 Panasonic pointed Joseph Taylor lead PNA. The selection of an American to run the company is seen as a sign that Panasonic wants its US arm to exercise more autonomy.

Panasonic and PNA are looking to put some distance between themselves and the worldwide financial crisis, which spelled trouble as consumer demand for their products plunged and price competition increased. Despite declining revenues in 2009 and 2008 -- and plummeting profits in 2009 -- the electronics giant continued to invest substantial sums in R&D to bring future generations of products to market.

Established in New York City in 1959, Panasonic Corporation of North America was known as Matsushita Electric Corporation of America until 2005 when its company name was changed to strengthen its connection to the brand.
