Thursday December 12, 2019

Congratulations Japan 2019 Award Winners:
Chief Digital Officer and Chief Data Officer of the Year!

On December 3, 2019 at the Winter 2019 Tokyo CDO Summit, CDO Club Japan representative Jun Kamo and his selection committee announced the two Japan “CDO of the Year” award winners for 2019.

The Japan “Chief Data Officer of the Year” 2019 award went to Yuji Yasuda, Executive Officer and Chief Data Officer at Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, Inc.

In April 1993, Mr. Yasuda joined the Bank of Mitsubishi (now MUFG Bank, Ltd.), at their Shibuya branch in the Planning and Risk Management division, where he was responsible for Operations Planning, HR, and Risk Management in their Tokyo and NY offices. In December 2017 he became Manager of the Corporate Data Management Division of both Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group and MUFG Bank, Ltd. In April 2019, Yasuda-san was appointed as Executive Officer and Chief Data Officer. 

He has expertise in building and implementing data-based strategies, and has been a pioneer in data governance, and building the system of integrating data of the entire group. The nominating committee appreciated Yasuda-san’s activities in organizing data management in his sector, and commended him for his positive impact on the whole of society. 

Mr. Yasuda received his degree from the Graduate School of Tsukuba.

The Japan “Chief Digital Officer of the Year” for 2019 award went to Aya Komaki, President/CEO and Chief Digital Officer at Sanrio Entertainment Co., Ltd.

Aya Komaki received her degree from the Graduate School of Education at the University of Tokyo. In 2014, Komaki-san joined Sanrio Entertainment Co. Ltd. as an advisor, and became a Director the following year. After her tenure as Director with SANRIO PUROLAND in 2016, she was appointed President/CEO and Chief Digital Officer in June 2019. Komaki-san is also Chairperson at “HelloSmile,” which provides awareness for preventing cervical cancer; President of the “Hello Dream” Executive Committee; and President of SDGs Platform.

The nominating committee appreciated her activities as Director, which resulted in a V-shaped recovery of SANRIO PUROLAND, changed the corporate culture to become digital first, and created a game-changing theme park that leverages the latest digital technologies. 

On November 29, 2019, Komaki-san was awarded the “Woman of the year 2020” by Nikkei Woman. She is a role model for female digital leaders both in Japan and abroad. 

Congratulations to both Mr. Yuji Yasuda and Ms. Aya Komaki on receiving their respective awards!
