In a country where very few women occupy "C-level" offices, Nakagawa, has continued to shatter glass ceilings. She was promoted to CFO in 2011 becoming the first woman to hold the post in Nomura Holdings' 86-year history. She was also named the first and only female executive managing director on the board, on which she serves.
Her appointment is a further demonstration of efforts to address Japan’s corporate culture in which men have dominated executive roles.
Ms. Nakagawa began her career at Nomura Securities, the securities brokerage arm of Nomura Holdings, in 1988, working at its investment banking and finance division.
She left in 2004 and rejoined Nomura Group in 2008 as president of its healthcare arm, Nomura Healthcare Co. She became executive managing director of Nomura AM in 2017.
