Where in London do you live? I live in Richmond.
Tell me something about your career: After several years working in recruitment in Tokyo, I moved to the UK in 2001 to study for a Masters degree. After graduating, I began my career in the property industry, becoming a lettings negotiator for a Japanese-owned agency. I progressed with the firm, working in central London and eventually managing six branches.
What skills do you bring to your role? I have extensive experience of the corporate lettings market in London, in particular working with Japanese corporate clients. I am also a member of ARLA Propertymark. This expertise is invaluable in my role heading the Japanese desk of Benham and Reeves dedicated corporate services department.
What do you enjoy doing outside work? I love running in Richmond Park and usually try and do a 12k run at the weekend.
