Yukie Araki

President & Representative Director / Consultant

After graduating from the Nihon University, Yukie joined Recruit Holdings Co., Ltd. and supported the hiring for various industries and occupations ranging from small and medium-sized enterprises to leading companies. In 2009, she studied abroad at the University of California Berkeley in the United States in order to learn about the differences between the organizations of Japanese companies and foreign-affiliated companies by experiencing that “the company changes when people change”. After returning to Japan, she participated as a founding member of the chemical team at a major foreign-affiliated recruitment agency. After engaging in various projects ranging from sales to research positions, she joined a major executive search agency in 2013 in order to be involved in recruiting of management-level positions who have a greater impact on the client’s business. She succeeded in many searches for senior executives and middle management of foreign-affiliated companies, and at the same time established a search method for positions that are difficult to acquire in a niche market.

She established Octavia Executive Search Co., Ltd. on April 6, 2020 with the thought to be a partner which “creates the truly best relationship” committing to “quality”, “results” and “credibility” in order to fulfill the visions of our clients and candidates.
