Japan – the view from the top: Kanetsugu Mike, MUFG
MUFG's CEO believes the bank has 'to provide the opportunity to challenge and fail'.
Kanetsugu Mike had big shoes to fill when he became president and chief executive of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG) in April this year. His predecessor, Nobuyuki Hirano, who is now the group chairman, was the most visible of all Japanese bankers and the profession’s most articulate spokesman on the global stage.
But Mike, pronounced mee-kay, was surely the closest possible equivalent to the man he succeeded.
