First Female Branch Managers at Leading Banking Institution
Monday, July 2, 2007 Posted: 03:24 PM JST
Resona Bank, Ltd., opening recruitment to the public, has decided to hire three women as branch managers. Of some 70 applications, some 30 percent came from women.
The three recruits have work experience in megabanks or securities companies, and Resona expects them to play important roles immediately. In early autumn and later this year, the newly hired managers will be sent to branches specializing in retail customers in Tokyo, Osaka and other cities.
Traditionally, branch managers are appointed from within banks, so this is the first time for a leading banking institution to recruit candidates from outside.
