Founded in Switzerland in 1964, Egon Zehnder is a global leadership advisory firm. It has one goal: to empower its clients to drive lasting, positive change through leadership. The Tokyo office, which opened in 1972, was its first non-European location.

“When leaders develop, organisations grow,” says Yasushi Maruyama, managing partner of the Tokyo Office and global executive committee member. “I’m passionate about helping people step out of their comfort zones to unlock their full potential.”

Maruyama provides advisory and coaching services to CEOs and CXOs at major Japanese and multinational corporations. He is also active in supporting education leaders in Japan.
