Seiyu Execs Go With English

Executives at Seiyu Ltd, Japan's fourth-largest supermarket operator, are to adopt English job titles from March 1. Titles such as 'Kaicho', 'Shacho' and 'Torishimaruyaku' will be replaced with their English equivalents 'Chairman', 'CEO' and 'Director'. US retailer Wal-Mart recently invested in the company, and the move is part of an effort to spread the parent company's corporate culture in Japan. Seiyu Web site.
