I am pleased to announce that effective June 1, 2009, Nihon Equity Research (NER) was merged into Alba Partners. NER's managing partners, Chako Ando and Bob Schneider, join us as Principal and Advisor, respectively. Ms. Ando has over 10 years of investment banking and capital markets experience. She was a VP in the M&A department of Daiwa America; manager of a venture capital investment fund for the Industrial Bank of Japan; and a VP of credit control with Sumitomo Bank Capital Markets. At both Daiwa and Sumitomo, she advised and analyzed companies in a wide variety of industries, including IT, health services, food, consumer goods, manufacturing, materials, and financial services. A Tokyo native, Ms. Ando is a CFA charterholder and holds an MBA from Stanford with a concentration in finance. Mr. Schneider has over 25 years' experience as a business writer. He was Senior Editor and Supervisory Analyst at Morgan Stanley Japan and a Senior Writer for the Tokyo-based IR firm AIA. He is currently editor of Data Interactive, the Hitachi XBRL blog.
