Daisuke joined our then two people team of Program Managers at Amazon Japan. He was responsible, thorough, smart, knowledgeable and focused. He was a pleasure to work with and was a welcome addition to our team. I would most definitely work with him again if I get the chance.
Daisuke is quite tech-savvy and without being a programmer/developer himself, he has a great insight into how things work technically. Practically all projects at Amazon involve some back-end system and development, so his PM skills along with his technical understanding must have helped everyone involved in his projects. As a developer, I would be very inclined to work on a project he's (T)PM-ing!
Daisuke was leading Amazon mobile business at the time I worked with him.
He has great compitencies as an Amazonian, such as:
1. Rolling up sleeves
3. Delivering results
4. Bias for action
I recomend Daisuke from my experience of working with him.
Daisuke’s experience working with teams in Japan and the US, particularly on products being developed in both countries is a real asset.
Daisuke is a thoughtful and energetic manager who understands social media inside and out. He was great to work with and gave me a lot of understanding of the Japanese market. I would highly recommend him for other projects.
Daisuke was a critical interface between the Vox team in Japan with the Vox team in the US. He was able to take US campaigns and translate them in ways that kept the original spirit but still spoke specifically to the Japanese market. He was a tireless worker and a champion for the product.
Dice was a great asset to Six Apart during the launch of Vox in Japan. His knowledge of both markets was key to its success and his management experience aided in the synergy across the Pacific. Dice also has a great sense of humor.
Daisuke was my colleague at both Amazon.co.jp and Orinoco K.K.
He really understands ins and out of internet, and faster than anybody that In know in keeping up with the latest trend of technology.
His ability to understand market environment, come up with a plan, and execute is very high.
He is also a great people person which made it very fun to work with.
He has gotten a brilliant knowledge and skill of the internet. Seeking the brand new web services anytime and feeding the precious information to us. His one of the greatest achievements was creating the Developer Network of Yahoo! JAPAN, thus this means he is also the expert of APIs.
It was a pleasure working with Horie-san when he was considering next step in his career. He has been very straight-forward, honest and business-minded. Although I was not able to deliver a result as an agent, I would love to work with Horie-san again when I have an opportunity. Thank you Horie-san!
