Mizuho Financial Group (MHFG) business card for William Raff. The business card identifies William M. Raff as Senior Vice President, Internal Control Corporate Management Division for the Americas at The Fuji Bank, Limited at 2 World Trade Center.
This business card is unique because a three-bank merger among The Fuji Bank, Ltd. (South Tower), with Dai-ichi Kangyo Bank (North Tower, 49th floor) and Industrial Bank of Japan (located at Rockefeller Center) would become a new entity, and renamed Mizuho Financial Group. The merger had been announced in 1999 but was not legally consummated until December 1, 2002. Therefore, on September 11, 2001, the card showed both names of the bank to be merged (Fuji Bank) and the new entity (Mizuho).
