Building a better working world
From an early age, I spent a large part of my childhood in Hokkaido, later returning to the UK to attend university. I hope that the combination of my lived knowledge of Japan and the UK, alongside my professional experience in both countries, brings value to the relationships that EY Japan builds with new and existing clients. Every day, my first priority is to identify and share client goals, helping them to achieve success in Japan and overseas, which will in turn contribute to building a better working world.
