A typical Japanese CEO is very different from a Western equivalent. The promotional structure is based on seniority and length of service. Evaluation of performance is constant through the 20‐30 years a person may work for a company before gaining senior management level.

Key attributes of Japanese CEOs are interpersonal skills, general management skills and marketing or financial abilities.
