movers and shakers
Osamu Yamashita, founder of Olympus, 1919.
It would be strange if a site devoted to Olympus made no mention of its primary movers and shakers.
In most company's history there are visionaries, personalities or pure talent that change for ever the fortunes of that company. For our subject, Olympus Imaging, there have been three.
The company founder, an engineer by profession, Osamu Yamashita.
His first design engineer, Eichii Sakurai.
His protegy, yet another engineer, Yoshihisa Maitani.
