The Tokyo Commodity Exchange has appointed Tadashi Ezaki as its
new president and chief executive officer. Ezaki replaces
Masaaki Nangaku, who will remain as an executive adviser.
Ezaki said his immediate focus was improving the
exchange’s fortunes, in line with
Tocom’s four year plan to grow trading volumes on
the exchange by introducing a new trading platform,
co-location, a circuit breaker system, and increasing trading
hours for its rubber contract.
He said the plan would position Tocom as Asia’s
largest derivatives exchange "and eventually as one of the
preeminent exchanges in the world".
Ezaki joined MITI (the Ministry of International Trade and
Industry), now known as the Ministry of Economy, Trade and
Industry, in 1965. He was appointed deputy director of the
commerce and information policy bureau in 1980, where he
oversaw the regulatory supervision of the Japanese derivatives
market and later became the director at MITI’s
Industrial Policy Bureau.
He left MITI to join Nomura Research Institute. Ezaki then
joined Shoko Chukin Bank as president before joining the Agency
of Natural Resources and Energy as director general.
