Satoru Yoshida (Honorary Treasurer)
Satoru Yoshida has been advising Japanese companies and entrepreneurs in the UK for many years. Since completing his law degree at Doshisha university in Kyoto in 1990, he has worked exclusively in accounting and taxation. He is the founding director of Japanese Financial Solutions Ltd and a partner of Japan Audit & Accounting LLP, chartered accountants. The organisations he worked for prior to establishing his practice were Ernst & Young LLP, Obayashi Corporation, Shimizu Corporation and JVC.
He believes the success of Japanese business in the UK will promote closer links between Japan and the UK. He provides pro bono work for non profit organisations to support this.
Satoru is married to an English sculptor who works in community art projects. As a father of a very young daughter with the double culture of Japan and Great Britain, he is keen on supporting educational projects linking British schools and Japanese schools together with promoting Japanese culture in the UK.
