said on Tuesday that Satoshi Tsunakawa had stepped down as chief executive amid turmoil over plans to restructure himself by splitting into two companies.
The company said that the company’s Senior Vice President Taro Shimada has succeeded Tsunakawa and will lead the company, which will run the energy and infrastructure business once the turnaround is complete.
In early February, Toshiba announced a revised plan to split itself into two parts by cutting off its equipment business. The other unit will manage other Toshiba assets, including infrastructure, in a change targeted for March 2024.
