AnyMind Group, a BPaaS company for marketing, e-commerce and digital transformation, has today announced two leadership appointments including Steven Tan, Managing Director of E-Commerce Enablement, Malaysia, and Koichiro Izawa, Managing Director of Accounting and Financial Control.

Steven Tan joined AnyMind Group through the acquisition of Arche Digital, a Malaysia-based e-commerce enabler that he founded in 2015, and continues to serve as Managing Director of the company. He has a PhD in Electrical Engineering, and worked as a research scientist and research scholar, before taking up managerial and leadership roles in medical supplies and electronics companies.

On his appointment, Tan said: “As we continue expanding synergies between Arche Digital and AnyMind Group, I am looking forward to playing an active role in supporting the management of the wider group. I believe that both companies will continue going from strength to strength, and I’m keen to use my experience gained throughout my career to help AnyMind accelerate business growth in Malaysia and beyond and enhance AnyMind’s BPaaS capabilities.”

At present, seven founders out of the nine companies that AnyMind Group has acquired, including Arche Digital, remain actively involved in leadership roles within AnyMind Group.

Koichiro Izawa joined Sakura Bank (currently Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation) in 1998. After working for a major audit firm, he joined a venture company in 2005 and took it public, leading the development of its management structure after the IPO. After that, he worked as a finance director for several foreign manufacturers in Japan and Southeast Asia, where he was involved in a wide range of operations centered on accounting and finance.

On his appointment, Izawa said: “AnyMind is a rapidly growing company in the global marketplace, and strengthening the finance department is essential to further accelerate our growth. I hope to contribute to AnyMind’s sustainable growth by leveraging my past experience to strengthen AnyMind’s finance structure. In particular, I will help AnyMind to increase the company’s transparency and credibility by improving its accounting processes’ efficiency and accuracy as well as accurate financial reporting.”

On the additions to AnyMind Group’s leadership team, Kosuke Sogo, CEO and co-founder of AnyMind Group, said: “We have appointed two leaders to strengthen internal structures in our e-commerce business and finance department.
