(as of July 1, 2014)

Every company needs a vision that extends well into the future, growth strategies and other guidelines to maintain a foundation capable of supporting sustained growth.
But the most important element of all is senior executives who have the knowledge, foresight and energy to reach decisions and take actions for achieving a company's objectives. This section presents management philosophies, profiles and other information about the Capcom directors who are responsible for meeting the expectations of the company's stakeholders.

  • Chairman and Chief Exective Officer(CEO)Kenzo Tsujimoto
  • President and Chief Operating Officer(COO)Haruhiro Tsujimoto

Capcom has ten directors, including three external directors. The opinions and advice of the external directors improve the transparency and reliability of the board of directors. The external directors also strengthen the board's ability to supervise management while facilitating more lively discussions. In addition, Capcom uses the corporate auditor system. The board of auditors has four members, including two external auditors. The external auditors attend meetings of the board of directors and other important meetings, provide objective and fair opinions, and perform other activities. This enables the external auditors to closely supervise the directors to ensure that they perform their duties in a manner that is legal and appropriate. Capcom also uses the executive officer system. By separating the roles of the board of directors, which determines management policies, and the executive officers, who conduct business operations, we have a framework that facilitates rapid decision-making as well as speedy and flexible business operations.

Comments from External Director

Fulfilling My Monitoring Function for Internal Controls and Legal Compliance

Director Makoto MatsuoIn recent years, several incidents involving the inappropriate disclosure of information in Japan and overseas have caused investors to demand companies strengthen their internal controls. Furthermore, the Companies Act and Financial Instruments and Exchange Act require the establishment of a "basic policy on internal control systems" to ensure the accuracy of financial reporting, legal compliance and management efficiency as well as the submission of an "internal control report" on the company's financial reporting. On top of this, Capcom is proactively expanding overseas and working to ensure management transparency by making "clearer quantitative management targets" for all of its group companies, in conjunction with their business growth. I am also aware of the importance found in building an optimum governance framework that encompasses global risk management and information management systems.

I will leverage my many years of professional experience and expertise as an attorney to strengthen Capcom's operational audits so as to strengthen the auditing function and enhance internal control and legal compliance based on objective and fair communication. I will also work to disclose information appropriately and promote the enhancement of Capcom's compliance and risk management frameworks in order to respond smoothly and appropriately in the unlikely event that unforeseen incidents should occur.

Hiroshi Yasuda :
