Yoshiaki Kawamata, CEO for Americas at Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, said: “Bringing Charles Trunz on board as chief risk officer to lead our risk management and compliance functions will serve us well going forward . Our growth strategy demands superior systems for managing risk across an increasingly complex financial enterprise.”
