IN HIS WORDS
What has been your favorite vacation?
Snorkeling and having local food in Miyako Island….truly an amazing trip!
What is one of your proud career moments?
Being a part of the tremendous Japan Sales growth at Gartner. In 2006 I was tasked with building the Gartner sales organization from scratch. Together with the help of a strong junior team, despite the Lehman shock, earthquake, and tsunami, we met or exceeded all sales targets.
