Mizuho Corporate Bank said Wednesday it has appointed Jeremy Ghose as an executive officer, making the Briton the first foreigner to take a board membership among Japan’s four largest banking groups.

Ghose, 43, currently chief of Mizuho Corporate’s management buyout operations in Europe, will take the post Oct. 1, the wholesale banking unit of Mizuho Financial 0Group Inc. said.

After working at a British financial institution, Ghose joined Fuji Bank, which created Mizuho Financial Group together with two other banks, in 1988.
