Nagayama, previously CEO of Chugai, Sony Board member, and now ex-Chairman Toshiba. Lurching from failure to failure. A corporate suit, he looks like he was promoted way above his competence level.

I pledge to you that I will continue to be an agent of positive change, not a protector of the status quo
