Kyocera Document Solutions America, Inc. is delighted to announce that Leonie Forristal, Chief Financial Officer, has been featured in this year’s Women Influencers edition of The Cannata Report.
The 9th Annual Women Influencers issue of The Cannata Report acknowledges, promotes, and recognizes women who make an essential contribution to the document solutions industry. Leonie is also featured in a special video released by The Cannata Report as part of the latest issue. Editor Scott Cullen says that the trio featured in the video spotlight are all Chief Financial Officers, “marking the first time the women profiled in our Women Influencers issue have held the same position.” The video is available to watch here.
"Being appointed CFO of Kyocera immediately put Leonie Forristal on our radar, and her fresh perspectives and forward-thinking strategies solidified her as one of our 2022 Women Influencers," said CJ Cannata, president and CEO of The Cannata Report. "Even though she is 'new' to document solutions, she has made an immediate impact throughout the channel. Her leadership is helping transform the industry."
“I feel honored to be recognized by The Cannata Report as someone who influences others in a positive way,” said a delighted Leonie Forristal. “Kyocera is a people-centric organization, and I am grateful to have been given the opportunity and platform to work with amazing professionals on a daily basis and to be able to use my experience to add value to the team. It’s the team ethos that is open for all to see, and makes Kyocera such a great place to work,” she adds.
“Having a professional with the caliber of Leonie in the position of Chief Financial Officer during what has been a turbulent and challenging few years for everyone has been huge,” says Óscar Sánchez, President and Chief Executive Officer at Kyocera Document Solutions America, Inc. He added, “Leonie was new to the industry when she joined, but her breadth and variety of experience and expertise has been a fantastic addition to the organization.”
On the Women Influencer recognition, Mr. Sanchez says: “Leonie has brought great leadership skills to the table during this complex period and this feature by The Cannata Report reflects this. It is well-deserved recognition, and we are proud to have Leonie as part of our team as we build towards an exciting future.”
The report details Leonie’s educational and professional background as well as her passion for bringing together the right people. In the issue she sheds light on how she established a financial planning and analysis team from scratch when she joined the company in December 2020 and the positive impact this has had on Kyocera’s operations.
Despite the current climate of uncertainty across the globe, Leonie is ambitious when looking ahead to the future from a Kyocera perspective. “We’re certainly not stagnant, and we’re looking at opportunities and addressing issues,” she tells The Cannata Report. “We’re always looking for continuous improvement.”
