Naoyuki works extensively in the automotive and assembly, retail, and principal-investment industries, focusing on operations transformation and supply-chain management.
His recent projects have supported clients in the passenger-car, heavy-vehicle, and equipment sectors. He has led multi-year operations-transformation initiatives at a variety of Japanese firms in the areas of supply-chain management, procurement-cost reduction, manufacturing-footprint redesign and productivity improvement, and R&D/product development. He also contributed his supply-chain expertise to various teams serving local automotive and assembly companies in Indonesia and other Asia countries.
Naoyuki is also active in the retail sector, where he has led multiple Japanese retailers in cost-reduction efforts that instituted lean operations at distribution centers and contract renegotiations with transportation vendors, the combination of which resulted in a significant cost improvement.
Naoyuki’s expertise allows him to be a frequent contributor to research conducted by McKinsey’s Automotive & Assembly, Retail, and Operations practices.
