Studio Ghibli has a new president as of this Tuesday, with the official appointment of Kiyofumi Nakajima. Formerly the director of the Ghibli Museum, Nakajima takes over for president Koji Hoshino, who will now serve as the company’s chairperson. Both are acting as representative directors for Ghibli along with Toshio Suzuki.
Prior to this, Nakajima became Ghibli Museum director in 2005, following a stint in 2004 as head of the museum’s management company, Tokuma Memorial Cultural Foundation for Animation. Kazuki Anai, former director of the museum’s planning and exhibitions, is now the new director of the Ghibli Museum.
Ghibli recently kicked its production department back into gear to work on Miyazaki’s latest film, Kimi-tachi wa Dō Ikiru ka, or How Do You Live?.
