I am grateful for the opportunity to be considered as an external director candidate for the Fujitec Board of directors. With extensive experience in both public and behind-the-scenes aspects of the information technology and security ecosystem in Japan, I understand the weight of responsibility involved in such an appointment, as any risks arising in this area may impact the stability of the business environment and the wider community. As such, the gravity of this responsibility - but also the opportunity to contribute to better, more sustainable outcomes – were critical factors in my decision to accept the nomination.
When presented with this proposal, I recognized that there are likely to be particular issues and challenges that differ from my previous experiences as an external director, auditor, investigator and officer. Nonetheless, I believe my experience across many of the risk domains that confront today’s corporate sector, such as cyber-security and fraud prevention, will readily transfer to the governance level of an iconic Japanese company in Fujitec and complement the skills and experience of other directors.
In addition to this contributing this expertise, my primary motivation for seeking election to the board is to assist in restoring harmony and diversity in our company’s operations, and working to establish a path that aligns with our nation’s cultural values and way of life, which I consider to be the "righteous" course of action.
Imposing ideas or strategies that are one-sided and stem from the narrow beliefs or extreme misunderstandings of a few individuals can create tension within the varied interests and concerns of shareholders and stakeholders. To prevent this and find solutions, we must remain open to alternative viewpoints or conflicting ideas, always prioritizing mutual understanding and respect as the cornerstone of our approach.
