Skill Matrix of Directors

Shimadzu is expanding its four business segments (Analytical & Measuring Instruments, Medical Systems, Aircraft Equipment, and Industrial Machinery) globally based on the corporate philosophy“ Contributing to Society through Science and Technology.” By integrating technologies from both Analytical & Measuring Instruments and Medical Systems, we are working to create new businesses that leverage our strengths in the healthcare field, among others. Shimadzu’s Board of Directors is also working to optimize the overall balance of knowledge and experience, diversity, and the number of Board members in order to strengthen monitoring and supervision of our business activities and to deliberate on strategies for increasing corporate value over the medium to long term.
For this reason, we have defined the knowledge and experience we consider particularly important for Shimadzu’s Board of Directors using a Skill Matrix. The matrix consists of “corporate management,” “international experience,” “technology and IT,” “marketing and sales,” “finance and accounting,” “compliance and risk management,” and “human resources and human resource development.” The Board of Directors will then be composed of people with appropriate levels of knowledge and experience in these areas. The knowledge and experience that are important to our Board of Directors will be reviewed from time to time in light of management policies and the business environment.
