Kozo Nagao joined Japan's Ministry of International Trade & Industry (now Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry) in April 1997, progressing in April 2001 to Booz Allen Hamilton, Inc. (now Price Waterhouse Coopers Strategy Company Limited).

In January 2002 he joined Corporate Directions, Inc. which he continues to serve as a partner. He has served as an advisor to Leader Electronics Corporation since July 2014, joining the board in June 2015.

Speaking about his appointment, Kozo Nagao, said: "Since the company's establishment in 1954, Leader has contributed innovative measurement technology for sectors of industry such as home appliances, television broadcasting and mobile telephones.

"Progressing with measurement technology as the basis of our business, Leader has evolved its products and supporting services to meet the demands of each era and will continue to pursue various forms of value provision into the future.

"In addition to improving the quality of broadcast communication, we are developing new technology for use in IP-based video distribution which is becoming increasingly important across the television and radio industry. 5G mobile telecommunication infrastructure is also expected to become widely adopted in the medium term. We hope to fulfil our social contribution based on our proven experience and skill in developing high-grade measurement solutions.

"The potential needs of our customers are an important factor guiding our strategy as supporter of innovation. Customer feedback relating to our existing products as well as requests for additional technical capabilities are always welcome, receiving our prompt and careful attention."
