Sharp doesn't want dynamo boss Tai Jeng-wu to leave just yet

Foxconn transplant calls job complete after company returns to TSE first section

Tai Jeng-wu became Sharp's CEO in 2016 and says it is about time to move on.

OSAKA -- With Sharp now back on the Tokyo Stock Exchange's big board, the electronics maker's forceful CEO considers his mission complete, raising questions about how the company will carry on his efforts to restore earnings growth. 

Tai Jeng-wu, the boss sent in by Taiwanese parent Hon Hai Precision Industry, has said from the outset that he would hand over the reins once Sharp made its return to the first section. Sharp reached that milestone Thursday, and the leader told reporters in Tokyo that he intends to follow through.
