Hardwork, perseverance and sheer passion is what it requires to make a mark in any trending precinct today. Kazuo Hirai, president and chief executive officer, Sony Inc., is one such incredible example of the technical arena. Strategic, intellectual and a gaming freak, he began his corporate career with Sony Inc. in the year 1984. With his determination and the eye for the pixel perfection, he was appointed as the president and the chief executive office in the year 2012.
Born in Tokyo, Japan on December 22, 1960, he was very inclined towards gaming since childhood. Travelling might just be a road to a destination for few, but not for Hirai. During his childhood, he made numerous trips to almost every corner of the globe - be it Canada, New York or California, a trait which eventually changed the course of Hirai's intellectual nature and that which is reflected in the organization he is associated with.
Graduating from the International Christian University, Japan with a bachelor's degree in Liberal Arts, Mr. Hirai joined Sony Inc. (previously CBS). Initially he was absorbed in the department of marketing international music. Eventually he moved to Sony Music Japan's New York office, where he led the Sony Computer Entertainment Japan's international business affairs.
