“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, Co-Head of U.S. and Asia. “We are very pleased to welcome Takuro to our growing team in Tokyo.”

Having Takuro on our leadership team will upscale our team’s capability to support Japanese companies at ‘when it really matters’ situations” said Tsutomu Noda, Partner & Managing Director, Co-Head of Asia and Co-Japan representative.
Takuro Ueji comments “I am very excited to come back to AlixPartners after 5 years and take the helm of our Japan business along with Tsutomu Noda.
