Sony Names Stringer New Chairman and CEO

Sony has picked Sir Howard Stringer as their new chairman and CEO. He speaks no Japanese, and he will replace the former chairman and CEO, the Tokyo-based Nobuyuki Idei, but Stringer will reside in New York.

Can a Japanese company be led by a non-Japanese speaking, non-Japan based leader?
