导读: 因对公司管理方向存在重大分歧,日本相机生产商奥林巴斯今日宣布解除英国人迈克尔·伍德(Michael Woodford)的CEO职务,CEO一职将由董事长菊川刚兼任。结果导致奥林巴斯股价重挫17%,同时也打压了日本的股市。

迈克尔·伍德在奥林巴斯工作30余年,于今年四月接任总裁职务。


Japan's Olympus Corp fired its CEO and president over the Briton's management of the camera and endoscope maker, sparking a 17 percent plunge in the firm's share price on Friday.

Michael Woodford, 51, took over as president in April after 30 years at the company, becoming one of only a handful of non-Japanese to run a large Japanese corporation.

In a blunt statement, the board of Olympus said Woodford "has largely diverted from the rest of the management team in regard to the management direction and method and it is now causing problems for decision-making by the management team."

Woodford -- who in a recent magazine interview was equally blunt about his management style -- told Reuters in May he would cut jobs to achieve his mid-term cost targets and reverse a slump in earnings while avoiding forced redundancies in Japan for cultural reasons.

Japanese boards rarely dismiss top executives, even when the company is struggling. The boards are often criticized by corporate governance advocates for failing to hold management accountable on behalf of shareholders.

Olympus said Woodford was "unanimously" dismissed as president and chief executive officer, but will remain as a director until that position is voted upon at the next annual shareholders meeting.

The company's chairman, Tsuyoshi Kikukawa, will take over as president and chief executive.

"We hoped that he could do things that would be difficult for a Japanese executive to do, but he was not able to understand that we needed to reflect the management style we have built up since the company was established 92 years ago, as well as Japanese culture," Kikukawa told a news conference.

Efforts to contact Woodford, who had previously been responsible for overseeing a restructuring of the firm's European operations, were unsuccessful.

The news drove Olympus' shares down more than 17 percent to a one-month low of 2,052 yen at one stage. By early afternoon, the stock was down 15 percent. More than 19 million shares were traded, 10 times the average volume over the past 30 days.

      didn't you read down? The board said he "has largely diverted from the rest of the management team in regard to the management direction and method and it is now causing problems for decision-making by the management team."

      in short, he has ideas different from those board members.
