I start every day excited to meet new people and make new connections. I’m curious about the people behind a business and particularly passionate about supporting the placement of women in management roles in Japan.

Before joining Egon Zehnder, Nobuko was a Senior Associate at McKinsey & Company. Previously, she was in a management position within a family-owned business. Nobuko has also taught at TAC Co., Ltd., Japan’s leading school for CPAs and tax accountants, and has worked as an auditor for Ernst & Young ShinNihon LLC.

Johnson Fellow in the U.S.-Japan Leadership Program of the United States-Japan Foundation. She also served as Manager for the Japan Gender Parity Task Force at the World Economic Forum. Nobuko volunteers at the Kamiyama Scholarship Foundation, providing scholarships to future leaders pursuing overseas advanced academic degrees, and also spends time mentoring younger high school students. She enjoys traveling, playing golf, fine dining, and spending time with her young son.
