Professor

Professor, Graduate School of Management, NUCB Business School“Teaching it in the management classroom, doing it in the real business world” is a new kind of “hybrid” businessperson standing at the intersection of two key roles: global manager/owner and business educator. This is why in 2001 he created a Tokyo/New York firm, Denscombe Corporation (www.denscombe.co.jp), to “bridge” business and education by providing strategic management solutions for repositioning/creating sustainable value propositions for corporate clients and business schools, and also by providing management education solutions for them as well. On one side, he is a truly globalized Tokyo-based British-American high value-added management professional with a 30-year successful track record of leading positive industry change and finding new value propositions. At the same time, he is also an accomplished management educator who has created new business schools/repositioned existing ones and who also has taught a wide range of high value-added management courses for Asian university business schools and corporate clients. In business education, as a management practitioner in the real world, his mission is to put “business” back into business school and to foster the global leadership required to take practical advantage of the great changes going on for sustainable corporate value propositions. Everything teaches, he does (or has done) in the real world. This gives him a unique learning value proposition because, with his global management track record and wide business education teaching experience, he offers an unparalleled learning experience for all those participating in his management classes. Before shifting his focus to Asia, had extensive management/owner experience in North America and Europe, focused on financial services, new business development, innovating markets and new market entry, and corporate strategy, especially restructuring.【BUSINESS BACKGROUND】President/CEO, Denscombe Corporation (Asia-focused strategic management consulting firm)President/CEO, Denscombe & Co, Inc.
