Hitachi has new supremo

by on08 January 2014

Starts on April Fool’s day

The company which sounds like a sneeze has appointed President Hiroaki Nakanishi to become its chief executive officer and chairman as of April 1. 

Senior Vice President Toshiaki Higashihara will replace Nakanishi as president, Hitachi said. Higashihara will also hold the title of chief operating officer, Hitachi said in a statement. Chairman Takashi Kawamura will step down on March 31.

The move might disappoint those who want to see Hitachi come up with some new directions rather than just shuffle its old ruling officers around.
