As the Country Director for Japan, my main responsibility is to establish and maintain strong relationships with clients in Japan and throughout the APAC region. Additionally, I support various departments, such as HR, Finance, and Facility, which may not have a presence in Japan.

As the first employee of 4G Clinical in Japan/APAC and the Client Services Lead, I played a crucial role in setting up the company in the region. My responsibilities included building studies, transitioning them to the production environment, and maintaining them. In the four years since I joined the company, it has experienced tremendous growth, with the number of employees in Japan rising to over 30. I am excited to be a part of this dynamic, rapidly growing company and enjoy the challenge of adapting to constant changes and improvements in systems and organizations.
