Kunitake Ando


Kunitake Ando

Kunitake Ando (安藤国威, "Andō Kunitake"; born January 1 1942) became president of Sony Corporation in June 2000, having been an employee of the company since 1969. On March 7, 2005 it was announced that he would step down to become an adviser, with Ryoji Chubachi succeeding him as president.

He first served on the board from 1994 to 1997, when he was removed as part of the massive reduction in the size of the board initiated by Sony president Nobuyuki Idei. He did not return to the board until he succeeded Idei as president, even though he was named Executive Deputy President and Chief Operating Officer in April 2000.

His secondary title was altered to Group Chief Operating Officer in 2003 and to Global Hub President in 2004.
