Business Solution, Chief Manager
7 years at KPMG AZSA & Co. International Financial Audit Division
This is to propose and present tailor-made optimal structures for Japanese companies expanding into Southeast Asia.
Our clients come from a wide variety of industries, including banking, retail, wholesale, logistics, manufacturing, education, IT, and services, but every industry has its own “high road” to overseas expansion. Recently, we have been receiving many requests for turnkey projects that start with market research, acquire local clients (distributors), establish a base of operations, and then hand over the business to the client. In this case, the Marketing Department, Business Advisory Department, and Accounting Services Department are all involved, so it is a challenge to coordinate between the members of these departments and to make the client’s intentions clear. In this case, the marketing, business advisory, and accounting services departments are all involved, so I play the role of coordinating between the department members and controlling the expectations of the client’s decision makers.
In addition, I personally utilize my bag-ground as an accountant to enter client companies as CFO to implement reforms during the M&A, financing, and PMI phases, and to plan and support business transformation as the next step for companies with a long history of expansion in Southeast Asia.
Roughly, the percentage of countries I spend a month in is 50% Singapore, 20% Japan, 20% Indonesia, and 10% other countries.
