Yasuda, Makoto

Makoto Yasuda is the former Chairman of Private Investment Company for Asia (PICA), an association of 243 North American, European, Japanese, Australian, and Canadian companies and banks.

Yasuda earned his B.A in Economics from Gakushuin University in Tokyo (1960) and a M.S. in Accounting Science from the University of Illinois (1963). Prior to becoming Chairman of PICA, Yasuda worked for the organization on projects involving direct equity participation, technology transfers, joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, project management, and corporate governance.
