It is with great honour that I have been elected to the Board of the CCCJ on July 1st, 2020. As some will remember, I was previously on the CCCJ board of Governors from 2011-2015 (Vice-Chair from 2012-2014). So, it is with great pride that I have seen the CCCJ grow over the years. I have also had the pleasure to serve on other board's such as the Forum Quebec-Japon and the Canada-Japan Society of British Columbia in the interim of coming back to the CCCJ. I now look forward to contributing to the various CCCJ committees that represent the present and future soul of our organization.
As per my corporate experience, I am proud to say that I have had an extensive career between Canada and Japan that dates back to over 20 years. I have worked for large multinational companies such as Nestlé Canada, Sumitomo Coporation, Hitachi High-Technologies, Fleury Michon America and more recently for Intralox Japan. Over the years, I have also done market entry consulting work for Quebec based companies, such as Les 7 Doigts de la Main (The 7 Fingers), looking to build their business in the Japanese market. I look forward to furthering business relations between Canada and Japan in the years to come.
