My most impressive memory with Yamanaka san is when he backed to Japan I heard our staff talking to each other that they are checking for some Japanese things to buy but do not know how they can buy When I looked at the Car schedule and saw that he is going to Japan seeing our staff asked him to buy sundries such as skin cream, seaweed… At that time, he was Director – a Manager for Hai Phong area I was really surprised when he buy such the things by himself and he is so close like that I still remember that time when BTMV team held the Year End Party in Tien Lang district Everyone joined happily, and Japanese expats also did. There was no discrimination. We enjoyed the party, drank and danced Yamanaka-san was so friendly with everyone no matter that was Director, Manager, AM or worker we were all friends, a family. That was so much fun. My most beautiful memory with Yamanaka-san is when he first came to Vietnam and setup the project with Bridgestone He worked in details with every issue such as to call every related staffs to sit down to find our the solution And there was another funny memory that in Driving Safety Contest, Yamanaka-san joined the “Tug War” and the rope was broken causing Yamanaka-san and Le Huy-san hurt That’s is unforgettable memory I think that Yamanaka-san and I have the same beautiful memory That was the first day when he arrived I went to pick him with a brand new car and beautiful flowers that day was also right his birthday That day is unforgettable to both of us Every time we saw him coming to Nomura office, we jumped into him right at the time for signing documents to send to Hanoi since he only came to Nomura once in several days My feeling about Yamanaka-san: he is a very nice leader and friendly to all people and always willing to help staff every time we got difficulties As for me, Yamanaka san is a friendly leader I really impressed by his gentle smile Secondly, it’s professional attitude in working I have never seen him get angry He always keeps calm and help us to maintain a positive mind. Yamanaka-san is really a proper leader and very smart I always think that Yamanaka-san is a person who is loved and respected by staff and colleague He is very friendly to all the staff and dedicated to the works Since he came here, his style is very young and he is very smart in the work He has got many sharp ideas He gave training to every one He has knowledge of every aspect, and he guided us He is so close to us, like a teacher, like a friend. My feeling about him: he is a friendly, opened and very polite person He keeps a polite attitude to all people even to workers, cleaners When a maid brings him a glass of water, he never forgets to say thanks I wish him to keep up his manner He will be back to his family – it’s a great happiness He will be balanced with work and life. and it would help him to work better. I would like to wish him success and happiness In 6 years working in Nomura as well as in Viet Nam we hope he have good memories And all people here has good memories about him. I would like to wish him and his family good health and new success in the new position Boss, we will miss you much!
