Tsuneo Sasaki

President and CEO, Sasaki Tsuneo Management Research, Inc.
Mr. Sasaki graduated from the University of Tokyo's Faculty of Economics in 1969 and joined Toray the same year. He is a father of three children, including a son (his eldest) with autism.
He has a difficult home life, as he must care for his son, whose condition causes problematic behavior on occasion. Moreover, his wife suffers from liver disease and depression. But he is also tremendously dedicated to his work. In an extremely busy career, he was relocated to Osaka or Tokyo six times as part of his company duties. His tasks have included rebuilding failed companies and executing various types of business reform.
He became a director at Toray in 2001 (the first among Toray employees who joined in 1969) and President of Toray Corporate Business Research, Inc. in 2003.
In 2010, he became the President and CEO of Sasaki Tsuneo Management Research. He has a unique business perspective that comes from his experience executing numerous business reforms and serving three presidents. He is also a lecturer in a manager development program.
Outside of the company, he has engaged in various public service-related activities, among them serving as a member of the Cabinet Office's Council for Gender Equality and as a visiting professor at Osaka University.
