Business Development Manager, Japan
Up until recently, language barriers often protected Asian countries such as Japan, China and Korea from many of the well-publicized targeted attacks that have plagued U.S. and European companies. But that is no longer the case, and when Easy Solutions opened its Tokyo office for the Asia Pacific region, they hired a proven industry leader to spearhead the company’s presence there. Masafumi Hatakeyama is a local security expert who brings a decade of security and technology leadership knowledge to Easy Solutions. Prior to making his way to Easy Solutions, Masafumi served in a variety of management positions and closed million-dollar deals for Symantec and VeriSign, two of the world’s leading security software companies, where his sales specialties were managed public key infrastructure (PKI) and multi-factor authentication platforms. Masafumi also worked for Hitachi Consulting as an advisor to Japan’s financial services sector, specializing in system development and IT governance.
Hatakeyama earned his B.S. in physics from Nagoya University and has an MBA from Globis.
