Mr Terunobu Maeda has assumed the office of President of Japanese broadcaster NHK. He will serve a three-year term.
Mr Maeda joined the then Fuji Bank in 1968 after graduating from the University of Tokyo and was President and Chairman of the post-merger Mizuho Financial Group.
“I intend to work in full accordance with the public broadcasting mission,” said Mr Maeda.
Mr Ryoichi Ueda, NHK’s reitiring President, stepped down on January 24 after completing a four-year term.
