Japan's foreign targets Include CEOs
As more Japanese companies expand by making large acquisitions abroad, some are finding they are missing a key element of success: a top executive who can bring together diverse domestic and foreign operations. … Joining the list more recently is Stuart Chambers, a former chief executive of U.K. glassmaker Pilkington PLC that two years ago was acquired by a rival only half its size, Japan's Nippon Sheet Glass Group. In April, Mr. Chambers was named CEO of the combined company, and he took the helm on June 27, according to a July 28 article from the Wall Street Journal.
