Miura joined Sony Corporation in 1982, where he was quickly appointed manager of the company’s sales and marketing functions in the Middle East. In 1986, he was appointed chief representative of Sony's office in Egypt and in 1988, was appointed as a member of the founding team that established Sony's regional office, Sony Gulf FZE in Dubai.
