TableCheck appoints Daisuke Kotegawa as advisor

TableCheck announces the appointment of Daisuke Kotegawa as a new advisor, effective April 1, 2024. As an advisor, Kotegawa will be a key figure in accelerating TableCheck's growth by promoting relationship-building and collaboration with domestic and international governments.

TableCheck's mission is to be a platform that connects restaurants and guests around the world by eliminating language and time differences through technology. As of March 31, 2024, the TableCheck Table Management System (TMS) is utilized by more than 9,800+ clients in 34 countries and regions around the world.

Daisuke Kotegawa's wealth of experience and knowledge in the financial sector will contribute to building relationships with government authorities and working with overseas government officials to help TableCheck realize its vision to become Japan's leading global tech company.

Comment from Yu Taniguchi, CEO of TableCheck:

"With the continued support of our partners and clients, our company is rapidly growing as a business. Last year, we took on new challenges and partnered with Hakuba Village and the Niseko area, which enabled us to bring more inbound tourists to Japanese restaurants. By welcoming Mr. Kotegawa, esteemed for his deep understanding of Japanese food culture, and leveraging his role as an advisor while cooperating with administrations both domestically and internationally, we believe we can expand our business into new areas. We will further accelerate our growth and strive towards our goal of achieving a strong global presence."

Comment from Daisuke Kotegawa:

"The world is no longer focused on competing for power, but rather on where people should invest our one and only life in order to live a long and happy existence. Good food is one important factor in eliminating stress; it boosts the immune system and promotes healthy living. Japan has a long tradition, microcultures and a variety of delicious dishes brought about by the ingenuity of its people. The variety of dishes served in Japan is among the highest in the world, and the dishes that bear the same name have different flavors depending on where they are served. I believe that it is a noble mission to promote our cuisine to the rest of the world so that everyone can enjoy the delicious cuisine in Japan, which will bring happiness and longevity to all mankind. It is my sincere hope that my past experiences at home and abroad will be put to good use for this purpose through TableCheck."
