The decision was made by the company’s appointments committe, which includes external directors, according to the Asahi Daily. The plan is expected to be proposed at a shareholders meeting in September, according to the Japanese paper.
Muromachi has not been implicated in the accounting issues that led to the resignation of 8 officials. He has been with Toshiba since 1975, when he joined the company as a general manager.
