Go Miyazaki has been appointed Corporate Vice President of FUJIFILM
Corporation in Tokyo; however, Mr. Miyazaki will also continue his role as
President of FUJIFILM North America and will assume the new title of CEO here
in the U.S.

Mr. Miyazaki joined Fujifilm in Japan in 1981 after graduating from Waseda
University, in Tokyo. Over the next twenty-eight years he held several key
management positions in Tokyo, the UK and Germany. In 2008 he came to the U.S.
as Division President, Electronic Imaging Division.

“During the past several years as my role expanded here in North America, I
have had the opportunity to work with a growing number of Fujifilm associates
and customers throughout the U.S. and Canada. I look forward to further
developing these relationships in my new position, and effectively managing
our company’s vision and corporate perspective on key issues, as our company
continues to evolve,” said Mr. Miyazaki.

Shigeru Sano, formerly Senior Vice President, Chief Administrative Officer,
General Counsel and Secretary for FUJIFILM Holdings America Corporation, has
been named as the new President of FUJIFILM Holdings America Corporation,
succeeding Kazuhito Yamamura who held this position for the past year.

“When I joined Fujifilm, the photographic industry was our primary market. Now
Fujifilm is no longer just a photographic company. In addition to our fine
digital cameras and photographic products, our core fundamental technologies
have allowed us to expand our business in the fields of medical imaging and
information, graphic arts equipment, electronic materials, pharmaceuticals and
much more. All of our products are designed to enhance the company’s
commitment to quality and sustainability,” said Mr. Sano. “As the president of
FUJIFILM Holdings America Corporation, the designated Fujifilm Regional
Headquarters for North America, I will continue to focus my team on supporting
the optimization of our subsidiaries across the region.”

After graduating from Kyoto University in 1980, Mr. Sano joined Fujifilm.
During his tenure, he continued his education at Indiana University of Law,
where he earned a Master of Comparative Law degree, and later held various
positions of increasing importance, including General Counsel of FUJIFILM
Corporation in Japan. He has been in the U.S. for over three years.

Judy Melillo has been promoted to Vice President, General Counsel and
Secretary for FUJIFILM Holdings America Corporation. Previously Associate
General Counsel, Ms. Melillo succeeds Mr. Sano who had this position for the
past three and a half years, and now serves as president of FUJIFILM Holdings
America Corporation.

Ms. Melillo joined Fujifilm in November 2005 where she began as Senior Staff
Counsel. She was later promoted to Assistant General Counsel, and then
Associate General Counsel. While in these positions, Ms. Melillo managed the
general legal affairs of FUJIFILM Holdings America Corporation and its
subsidiary companies, including the acquisition of several new businesses and
the corporate reorganization of existing businesses. Ms. Melillo graduated as
valedictorian of her class from Pace Law School in 2001, and earned her
undergraduate degree from Boston College in 1998.

“Over the nearly eight years that I have been with Fujifilm, the most
satisfying aspect of my job has been working together with my Fujifilm
colleagues to develop effective business and legal solutions in challenging
times,” said Ms. Melillo. “Together, we were able to accomplish a number of
mergers and acquisitions to help this company grow, and I look forward to
continuing our work and expanding on this foundation.”

Fujifilm’s new appointments are in recognition of these executives for their
leadership and numerous contributions to Fujifilm’s growth and success.
