Brandsten (Japan) Limited is a company with 50 years history in the Japanese market, originally as a high-end European imported textile sales agent.

HR Consulting Division was established in 2009, by transferring businesses of the Japanese subsidiary of a Singapore-based HR Consulting and Executive Search company, by Yuka Setsuda, Executive Director / Representative - Southeast Asia, and Yoshiki Wakatsuki, Executive Director / Partner.

What we do:

Executive Search = Maximise career happiness of people + Right person in a right place

We do not specialise in any specific industry or position, rather specialise in supporting companies in ‘difficult’ situations and searching right candidates for the positions which are ‘difficult’ to fill. We only work with good and cooperative clients, partners and individuals with good will, as we chose to remain as a boutique company.

How we work:

We value transparency and fairness among clients, partners and individual candidates, with maintaining necessary confidentiality. We deliver swiftly, and most cost-effectively, or declare that we cannot do the job, and find alternative solutions for the client.
