Governance Reform Initiatives

Generally, an owner-run company excels at flexibility and fast decision making, though concerns may exist over the difficulty of passing on management to the next generation. At Capcom, we strive to make management more transparent and visible, and have implemented various governance reforms. We proactively appoint external directors, with 50% of our directors now external directors.
