Success Stories


We placed a partner and two senior managers into the same team at Price Waterhouse Cooper Financial Advisory. They all started at the same time and have continued to work together in the same team for some years. We remain extremely good business partners and friends as of today, and we get together on the anniversary of their hiring to celebrate and share in each others’ successes.


We worked with one of our top clients; Jefferies, a boutique investment bank from New York, in hiring their first MD in Tokyo since they started business in Japan back in 2015. We continue to work with them on key positions within their organization.
