CEO Message

Akira Shimada, President and Chief Executive Officer,Member of the Board

My name is Akira Shimada, and I was appointed as President and CEO of NTT in June of 2022. As the future economic situation and business environment remains unclear, we hope to create a path forward by proactively responding to changes and challenges, while transforming ourselves.

The NTT Group's business has been evolving. Forty years ago, when I joined NTT, we only had the telephone business, but now voice-related service revenues account for only 15% of our operating revenues. I will take swift action to reconfigure our resources and add new ones with a strategic focus on global changes.

I want the NTT Group to become a company that connects data to create new value for people, business and society. In addition to introducing new products and services in our existing business areas, we must also add completely new business areas to complement them.

I believe that data is the key to this endeavor. We will create new added value by leveraging our strong ability to accumulate and analyze information. For example, in our efforts to support the medical field, manufacturing industries, business services and primary industries such as agriculture, livestock, and fisheries with ICT technology, we can acquire a variety of new data and structure it for analysis to make better decisions, thereby connecting data to create new value.

We need to apply our technology and innovation to many fields and collaborate with our partners to solve social issues. I want to dynamically transform ourselves and deliver new experiences, value and excitement to our customers.
