Tom was not only well known in Japan for his many contributions to the global business community, but also for his leadership, which was instrumental to the ACCJ's strategic pivot toward external engagement. He was a key driver in building the foundation of the ACCJ's current community service and external advocacy initiatives, which truly set the ACCJ apart from its counterparts in the region and enable more effective pursuit of the ACCJ's mission.
Tom is remembered with great fondness and will be missed by his many friends at the Chamber. We extend our gratitude and condolences to his family at this time.
The ACCJ Journal will feature a special tribute to Tom in its October 2019 issue. If would like to contribute your remembrances and thoughts to this tribute, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org by September 6.
