Soichi Yokoyama


Soichi brings a wealth of business development experience and an energetic, can-do attitude, essential for DG TAKANO’s growth and global expansion. He joins DG TAKANO after a successful career at the Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper, Kindai University and Deloitte Tohmatsu LLC in order to work towards building a clean, sustainable society.

As the Chief Operations Officer of DG TAKANO, Soichi heads his own projects and works to better our organisational efficiency and optimise project flow by helping members identify their bottlenecks.

A subscriber to the philosophy of People, Profit, Planet, Soichi believes that labour-saving technologies are the first step towards building a sustainable society with next to zero non-recyclable waste.
“Japanese society is highly cooperative”, he explains, “so I believe large-scale change is very much possible. If we manage to do that, then Japan can be a good example for the rest of the world.”

When not at work or running to a meeting, Soichi is an avid reader who spends more than 10,000 yen, or about 90 dollars, on new paperbacks every month. Fitting reading time in his busy schedule, however, is no easy task, so he’s found a creative solution—reading in the bathtub. How many of his books are soaked, you ask? Soichi claims none.
