Personnel Changes at Monex Inc
In light of the organizational changes at the retail brokerage, the firm has also announced a suite of personnel changes which will be effective from October 1, 2018. Atsushi Yasuhara, who has been an Executive Director at the company since October 2010, has been appointed to the Head of System Development Division.
During his time at Monex, Yasuhara has held a suite of roles at the broker. Since June 2015 he has been General Manager of the Second System Development Department at Monex, Inc. Before this, he has also served as the General Manager of Global System Department and Head of O&T Planning Office at Monex Group, Inc.
The broker has also hired three new employees. These are Yasuhiko Kurata, who has been named as the General Manager of the Internal Audit Office. Haruhiko Ito has been appointed as General Manager for the Customer Service Planning Office, and Takeko Miyasawa has joined the company as General Manager of the Hachinohe Operation Center.
Earlier this month, Monex Inc announced further executive moves. As Finance Magnates reported, in September Kiyoshi Tamura was replaced as company auditor by Kazunaga Nakajima. However, Tamura did not leave the group. Instead, he moved to the company’s other subsidiary, Coincheck, a Bitcoin wallet and exchange service headquartered in Tokyo, Japan.
