It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Nobuyuki Idei-san.


Idei-san was a longstanding friend and ally. As an international advisor to GPC, he brought his knowledge and relationships to bear in a selfless manner. The firm has benefitted greatly from his boundless energy, great enthusiasm for ideas and can-do approach.


Idei-san was a maverick, internationalist and humanitarian, who believed in transformational change and wanted his country to be a great nation among other great nations, contributing to the world at large to make it better for all. He crossed boundaries and often held positions that allowed him to bridge international cultures and differences.


We wish his family well and are very sorry for their loss, which is a loss for all of us.
