Summary

I am the Founder and was the first CEO of a company listed on the mothers section of the Tokyo Stock Market. I Specialize in IT, Marketing and Media, Finance and Valuation, Mergers and Acquisitions and Turnaround.

My career began when I accepted my first job at Japan’s premier and most profitable publishing company known as “Recruit” Corporation. Working with Recruit allowed me to see inside a solidly professional company with a strong identity and corporate culture. It was one of the best experiences in my entire life. This experience allowed me to see how a company that dominates the market lives and breathes and creates a corporate cult and identity reminiscent of corporations like 3M. Many years’ later, companies like Apple Computers and Google would come along and build such a corporate cult identity, but Recruit in Japan was most definitely one of the first.

After getting my feet wet at Recruit, I was offered a bigger challenge at a terrestrial (free) TV network  “TV Tokyo.”

My first assignment at TV Tokyo was in the Accounting and Finance department. The lessons that I learned there helped me immensely later on as I was continually promoted, eventually to the position of Chief Executive Officer.

After time spent at the Accounting and Finance department, I was promoted and moved up to the Programming and Sales Division. After a successful few years in Programming and Sales Division, I was promoted to head of the entire Marketing Division.

The experience in Marketing Department was also invaluable to my core skills and understanding. Soon, after that, I became the head of the entire Internet Section. Within one year, I had raised $5 Million (USD) from several financial backers such as; NIKKEI (much like the Wall Street Journal in U.S.); NTT (like ATT in the USA); NEC, an electric manufacturing giant the world over; and Sharp Corporation, as our initial share holders along with TV Tokyo. Soon, many major Japanese publications, and owners of so-called Japanese Anime like Shueisha, Kadokawa, and Sho-Gakkan joined. Soon again, NTT Docomo and Voda-Phone (Major wireless carriers in Japan) also became shareholders in the company I created. Within four years, we were so successful especially in mobile phone application business that we were able to IPO this company on the mothers Section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange.

During this period of rapid growth and success, I was able to study and learn from great teachers and books. Some of the books that inspired me were by great thinkers such as, Michael E Porter; Peter F. Drucker; Philip Kotler; as well as James Collins’ seminal works, “Built to Last,” and, “Good to Great” (my personal Bible); also included are Michael E Gerber’s, “The E-Myth”; Tom Copeland’s, “Valuation” (this book is invaluable); as well as books by John P. Kotter and Barbara Minto.

Specialties include;
Marketing, IT, mobile phone application
Free TV network,Publicity,Direct Marketing,Regal and Financial; Intellectual property, Mergers and Acquisitions, Corporate Split-Up, Accounting,

Human Resources, Empowerment, setting a Mission Statement.

Experience
President & CEO
■TV Tokyo Broadband Inc.
Internet & mobile phone industry

March 2001 – March 2009 President & CEO

■FM Interwave  InterFM

Radio station

August 2004 – January 2008

As the CEO of TV Tokyo Broadband Inc., I acquired a Tokyo FM radio station in March 2006. With the help of the fantastic team we built, we turned it around in one year. This station had been a perennial loser to the tune of more than $2 Million (USD) a year for 11 years. Immediately, to reduce costs, we introduced a computer production system that cut production costs by more than 40%. With the help of solid marketing research, we changed the target audience of the station from old men (50 to 60-year-old) to young people (20 to 35-year-old). Also, we created a total marketing package plan and executed it with the fine staff I had assembled. The result was extremely successful with the station showing a profit for the first time in its history of a $400 thousand (USD) surplus for the initial 12-month period.

■ Sesame Street Partners Japan (LLP)
Media Production industry

July 2003 – October 2005 (2 years 4 months)

I was honored to play the main roll in acquiring the all rights for Sesame Street in Japan, including broadcast (including territorial free TV network, Satellite and cable), all merchandising, advertising, wireless, Internet, and so on. NHK (Japan’s version of the BBC) had broadcast Sesame Street for over 30 years, while SONY had held merchandising rights over 15 years. It wasn’t an easy road taking control of Sesame Street from these two entities. After dozens of meetings back in forth between the USA and Japan, finally, we were able to outmaneuver the competition and acquire Sesame Street. From this experience and this process, I learned a great deal not only about International business, but about intellectual rights, contents, copyright and all legalities related to this most fascinating business.
