Board of Directors

Yoichiro (Pina) Hirano

Director, Chairman of the Board

Yoichiro (Pina) Hirano is the Founder and CEO of Infoteria Corporation since 1998. He also serves as a director, chairman of the board. In just 8 years, he led the company from start-up to successful IPO company at Tokyo Stock Exchange and then received a Japanese EAI Market Share No.1 for 9 years in a row.

Beside of being the Founder and CEO, he taught Management of Tech-startups at Aoyama Gakuin University Graduate Program from 2008 to 2011 as a visiting professor. Prior to founding Infoteria with Yoshiyuki Kitahara, CTO of Infoteria, he led a team of Product Marketing and Strategic Planning for 10 years at Lotus Development Corporation, which is now a part of IBM Corporation. Before Lotus, he had developed one of the best-selling Japanese word processer as a Software Engineer.

Although he was accepted in Kumamoto University in Japan, he chose to drop out of the college for the huge opportunity in the innovative software product marketspace. That decision has been proven as the right one because of the successful corporation he runs today.
