“Takuro’s broad experience helping Japanese companies with their most complex transformations and his deep C-suite and functional knowledge will be of great value to our clients who are facing unprecedented and continuous disruption,” said Andy Eversbusch, Partner & Managing Director and Co-Head of United States and Asia at AlixPartners.

Tsutomu Noda, who leads the Asia Pacific division together with Shiv Shivaraman, added: “The business environment surrounding Japanese companies is becoming tougher than ever because of multiple disruptions such as cost increases due to inflation and supply chain issues. Having Takuro on our leadership team will upscale our team’s capability to support Japanese companies at ‘when it really matters’ situations.”
