By Loukia Gyftopoulou


Deloitte has appointed its first Asia Pacific leader to come from Japan.

Yoichiro Ogawa, who has a 30-year career with Deloitte Japan, will serve a four-year term as the global managing director for Asia Pacific, effective 1 June 2015.

In his role, Ogawa will be responsible for driving market leadership and quality across the region, strengthening the firm's brand and client services and identifying further growth opportunities while working with member firm leaders to enhance bonds and collaboration.

In addition to the Asia Pacific regional leadership role, Ogawa will also become the Deloitte global managing director of regions and will serve as a member of the network's executive and operating committees.

Ogawa's appointment is part of the new leadership team set up by Punit Renjen, Deloitte's global chief executive as of 1 June 2015.

Commenting on the role, Ogawa expressed excitement and said the potential for growth in the Asia Pacific region is tremendous.

He is taking over from Chaly Mah, who will continue in his role as the Deloitte Southeast Asia chief executive and as a member of the Deloitte global board.
