UBIC, Inc. (UBIC) Announces Personnel Changes

Yesterday, UBIC announced an important personnel change. Masami Yaguchi, the company’s Controller, will assume the joint position of Chief Financial Officer and Chief Administrative Officer, effective December 1st.

Prior to joining UBIC in December 2012, Masami Yaguchi served in a variety of management positions in the finance and administration industries. He was the CFO and CAO at Springsoft, Inc., a startup company, and was also the Finance and Accounting Director for CMA CGM Japan, a world leader in container shipping. He has also worked in various finance roles, including operations controller and treasury and tax for Applied Materials Japan.

Mr. Yaguchi is replacing current CFO and CAO, Seitaro Ishii. Mr. Ishii will decrease his day-to-day responsibilities to spend more time with his family, following his assistance in expanding UBIC’s presence in Asia, North America and Europe. Mr. Ishii will continue as a strategic advisor to the company’s CEO, Masahiro Morimoto, and Mr. Yaguchi. He will also remain a member of the board of directors of UBIC’s North American subsidiary.

“It has been my pleasure to work closely with Sam Ishii over the past four years. His leadership and experience were invaluable as the company grew its business and technology, and expanded its presence around the globe,” Mr. Morimoto said. “I am grateful for his help and I am happy Sam will continue as a strategic advisor to me and the senior management team at UBIC.

“UBIC’s new CFO and CAO, Masami Yaguchi, is a talented financial professional. He has demonstrated tremendous capability as Corporate Controller working with our management team over the past year,” added Mr. Morimoto. “His talent, his accomplishments and his familiarity with UBIC make Yaguchi-san a natural choice to succeed Sam Ishii in these key senior management roles.”
