Our Founder & CEO is a Japanese naturalist entrepreneur and private investor. A great admirer of nature and animals, he comes from a 3rd-generation agricultural family farm, descending from the Kanto region of Japan.
Uniquely raised in Japan, educated in the U.S., lived and worked extensively across Europe, he has over 20 years of global operational experience in food & agribusiness, nutrition, healthcare, hospitals & pharmaceuticals, animal health, and beautycare sectors – in the West, Japan, China/Taiwan, and Southeast Asia.
He holds advanced degrees from Harvard Medical School (Medicine) and Harvard Business School (MBA), and resides in Singapore.
In his spare time, he enjoys fly fishing (humane catch and release only) in idyllic mountain streams and European classical oil painting.
