Boss Stringer has overseen "structural reforms" to Sony that helped them 'stop bleeding' but hasn't 'steer to growth', which is what Sony needs next.
Hiroshi Yoshioka is another of the lead personalities within the company to possibly receive the post. “Stringer should be credited for carrying out structural reforms to stop the company from bleeding,” said Resona Bank's chief fund manager Kohi Toda in Tokyo.
"Nevertheless, Stringer hasn’t managed to steer the company to growth. His accomplishment was rather earning time and energy for Sony to get ready for the next growth.” Kaz Harai was made president of Sony's US games division in 1999.
Before that he was involved in the joint venture between Sony and CBS, where he started his career in 1984, and it later became known as Sony Music Entertainment Inc.
