- Please tell us about your career to date. -
After graduating from Dalian University of Technology in China in 2013, I joined a Japanese Consulting firm in Japan, where I worked for 5 years in SAP consulting business. She was mainly involved in upstream projects such as SAP products and infrastructure system implementation.
After that, I moved to another Big4 Consulting firm and spent a year in a large company where I experienced business transformation projects and conceptualization projects for system implementation in the purchasing department.
Then, in 2019, I founded ARK CONSULTING, Inc. with other members of the consulting industry who I had been fortunate enough to know.
- How did you start your company? -
Originally, I had a dream of starting my own business since I was a student, and I wanted to change this society for the better through my own efforts. That's the motivation behind the establishment of ARK.
Apart from entrepreneurship, I had a dream of becoming a mechanical engineer (a college major), but I gave up on that and jumped into the consulting industry with an eye on starting a business in the future. The skills and knowledge I acquired as a consultant in the firm are certainly helping me to found ARK CONSULTING Ltd. today.
I want to use ARK as a starting point to bring together people from all over the world and contribute to the betterment of our society through the use of advanced technology and consulting business. I enjoy working with my team members on a daily basis and feel happy.
- Who do you belong to? -
