Corporate Governance

Efficient, highly-transparent corporate governance

For HOYA, corporate governance is one of the priority issues for management in its efforts to maximize corporate value. To ensure that governance is not weakened by managerial inbreeding, our articles of incorporation stipulate that over half of directors be independent of the company. At present, CEO Suzuki is the only internal director. Efficient, highly-transparent corporate governance is a noteworthy feature of HOYA´s corporate governance structure.

Board of Directors

  • 1989(17 internal directors)
  • 1995(7 internal directors, 1 outside director)
  • 2015(1 internal director, 5 outside directors)

*In 2003, HOYA set forth in the Articles of Incorporation
that the majority of Directors consist of Outside Directors.

Outside directors are all corporate executives.

The fact that all outside directors are corporate executives is another feature of HOYA´s governance. Diversity in their experiences and backgrounds is contributing to raising management quality.
