This is Japan, so Son will remain the boss until he dies. "Stepping down" means he will have more time to play golf, but he will always have the final say in any decision the board or Arora want to make. In Japan the old men run the show, even if they are no longer sitting in the boardroom.

agreed, but Arora has nothing to worry about it, good luck to him but he is unlikely to stay with SoftBank that long.

“Nikesh Arora brings with him a broad global perspective as well as extensive knowledge of Internet businesses,” Yahoo Japan said in a statement.

Yeah - and once he sees how businesses, particularly tech companies, operate here - he'll be flying out the door. Corporate Japan and his former Google couldn't be further apart.

Wow. Lots of fatalistic defeatism, posters.

Should we not welcome the opportunity for fresh thinking, and hope that Arora shakes the cellular tree here, especially being privy to Google's ambitions in this space?

In my previous company the old man actually came back to be president again, after "lehman shock" hit.

Oh, that's right. This guy doesn't know what wise posters on JapanToday know. Get over yourself, he got the position as the chairman of one of the largest companies in Japan.
