McGill Japan Forum and Shinnenkai–Big Success

The McGill Alumni Association in Japan–MAAJ–and the McGill Japan Office of the Desautels Faculty of Management welcomed over one hundred and forty alumni, students, guests and friends of McGill to their annual McGill Japan Forum and Shinnenkai.

The McGill Japan Forum (Number 6) centered on a discussion of the new wave of globalisation of Japanese companies. We were treated to the inside story from  Ryo Hirooka, Representative Executive Officer and CFO, Hoya Corporation, Francois-Xavier Lienhart, Senior Managing Corporate Officer, LIXIL Corporation, CEO LIXIL Kitchen Technologie and Quentin O’Mahony, MBA 2010, General Manager, JAL CAE Flight Training.

The McGill Japan Forum and Shinnenkai is one of the largest McGill-alumni related events held annually anywhere in the world and is a tribute to the tight-knit and growing McGill community in Japan.
