I wonder how that will change the global outlook?

Well, a none Japanese boss in charge of a Japanese company is not as impossible as it might sound. I was reading a BBC article about Nokia tonight, which just happened to mention in passing that Sony has a Welsh boss who's done very well for them.

We really mus tinvite him to an e-Group outing... it would be a good opportunity for him to relate to some really enthusuastic customers and you never know he may bring a long a freebe or 2 (I could do with some SHG glass)

Oh. and we could bend his ear about just how B***din awful his marketing department are in launching new cameras :rolleyes:

This could be a good turn around for the company & hopefully bring a more global strategy to the company. There seems to be market decisions that are more steered by the Japanese market & not enough from the demands or desires of the world market (I could be totally wrong on that).
