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.

The now legendary Sir Ernest Mason Satow (1843-1929) was a member of the British legation in Tokyo for twenty-one years. This classic book is based on the author's detailed diary, personal encounters, and keen memory. In it, Satow records the history of the critical years of social and political upheaval that accompanied Japan's first encounters with the West around the time of the Meiji Restoration. Fascinating.
