Norihito Asao

President & CEO

As President & CEO Norihito Asao is responsible for the overall management and the strategic direction of Hytec Inter. Under his leadership Hytec has grown from a fledgling trading company of just 5 employees in 2003 to the international SME of 60+ that it is today, with offices in Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Israel.

It is Norihito’s motto in business to challenge the market where others fear to tread, and in doing so create new value where none existed before. At Hytec, this translates to proactively operating in niche markets by listening to the needs of end-users and ensuring that Hytec always provides that “extra mile” value. With this guidance Hytec has built strong relationships in challenging verticals, and time and again seen successful expansion of its portfolio in the demanding technology sector.

In 2014, after identifying a critical need for stable video streaming over narrowband networks, Norihito pioneered the decision to invest in development of the technology that became HEVC-ULC®. Today, ULC has an extensive product line-up with a wide range of projects in Defence to Industrial sectors.

Norihito holds BSc in Wireless Communication with a Level 2 Operator license from the Japanese MIC (Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications). Additionally, he is an expert in xDSL, IP, Wi-Fi, 3G/LTE, NB IoT and Fiber networks and technologies, with over 20 years of real-world system installation experience.
