Talent continues to jump ship at Sharp

Head of Asia business moves to major electronics retailer

Hon Hai Chairman Terry Gou, left, has so far succeeded in lifting Sharp's earnings, but the Japanese subsidiary has been unable to stop talent from leaving.

OSAKA -- Japanese electronics maker Sharp has lost another executive, with a managing officer in charge of Asian operations switching his allegiance to Edion, the operator of a major consumer electronics store chain.

Akira Atarashi had been appointed last August to the post of managing officer, serving as head of Sharp's Asia-Pacific and Middle East business, in a management shuffle following Taiwanese company Hon Hai Precision Industry's acquisition of Sharp.
