Hitachi CEO Hiroaki Nakanishi sought to grow his wide-ranging Japanese conglomerate, which has been losing out to General Electric and an increasing threat from China’s industrial manufacturing sector. In 2015, he bulked by up buying Finmeccanica’s railroad business for $2.2 billion. Added to the earlier purchase of American iron casting company Waupaca Foundry Holdings, Nakanishi’s moves helped increase revenue modestly for the year to almost $90 billion. Strong results in North America and Europe more than offset weakness in China and its home market of Japan.
