After one recognition to another, AirAsia’s Group CEO Tan Sri Tony Fernandes has been named as one of the ‘Top 100 Most Influential People for Japan’ by Japan’s highly-esteemed Nikkei Business magazine.
The ‘Top 100 Most Influential People for Japan’ list is shortlisted from recommendations by various business leaders in Japan, and is reviewed, researched and investigated thoroughly by the Nikkei Business magazine team resulting in six categories containing the ‘100 People Creating the Japan of Tomorrow’. The six categories are Game Changer, Creator, Hero, Leader, Thinker and Dreamer.
The ‘Top 100 Most Influential People for Japan’ is part of Nikkei Business magazine’s final segment of five-week editorial series throughout October called ‘Nikkei Business Readers’ Bible 500’, where they feature the top 100 of each week’s topic. The five topics in sequence were Future, Technology, Japanese Companies, Cities and People.
Tony Fernandes is the first and only Malaysian, as well as one of the three non-Japanese to make it to the extensive list of those who have contributed to the Japanese market, and has emerged as the ‘Game Changer’ in Japan, according to Nikkei Business magazine. The other two non-Japanese nominees in the list are Elon Musk, Chief Executive Officer of Tesla Motors; and Steve Jobs, founder of Apple.
