TOKYO , February 25, 2022 (press release) –

Under the new structure, for the first time in Konica Minolta, an outside director will assume the position of Chairman of the Board and outside directors account for majority of the Board of Directors. It aligns the company’s initiatives to build and further advance a highly transparent system of governance that maintains a clear separation between supervisory and executive functions.
