Chief Operating Officers’ Messages

Japnit Singh

Chief Operating Officer, YAMADA Consulting & Spire

“At heart, Y&S retains its DNA from both parent companies to remain a service-focused and nimble organization, with a youthful, boutique and entrepreneurial spirit.”

From two companies, we are now one. We are thrilled to be on this journey of transformation and growth, with the integration of YAMADA Consulting Group (YCG) and Spire Research and Consulting.

As we move forward, existing customers can expect the same service, quality and customized solutions from both organisations as in the past. Our customers will always come first. In fact, clients can now take advantage of the broader range of services and increased capabilities YAMADA Consulting & Spire (Y&S) offers.

Beyond data and market research, we can now guide customers in more areas, such as financial management, forecasting feasibility studies and identifying and connecting them to the right partners. 

Our expertise, knowledge and capabilities in Japan, the world’s third largest economy, has also taken a quantum leap. Asian clients will be able to access this vital market more effectively, whether selling or importing, or seeking investment partners. Likewise, Japanese companies looking outwards will be able to leverage our deep, local market knowledge and expertise, to access Asian markets.

We are able to serve our clients with a comprehensive set of solutions regardless of their growth needs, whether organically, through market expansion, or joint ventures and Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A). The synergy between YCG’s inorganic growth services and our market research expertise enhances our M&A Advisory, making it particularly compelling for greenfield projects.

Our Growth Consulting practice supports companies to internationalize within Asia, including studying market opportunities and threats, identifying the best mode of entry, connecting partners up, and developing implementation road maps.

Whatever your business challenge, our project management will continue to be flexible, with robust governance. Our clients will be served by a bigger multifunctional and multicultural team with a wider range of skills and local and industry-specific expertise. 

Yes, we may be a bigger organisation, but at heart, Y&S retains its DNA from both parent companies to remain a service-focused and nimble organization, with a youthful, boutique and entrepreneurial spirit. Above all, every team member continues to have client service at their heart.
