One passionate professional is becoming the new Executive Director of ISC. Yuuki Shinomiya, who was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and raised in Japan, says that the partnership between the U.S. and Asia is near and dear to his heart.
Yuuki spent much of his childhood in Japan and returned to the United States as a Grew-Bancroft Scholarship, established in honor of the US Ambassador to Japan, Joseph C. Grew, to attend Oberlin College. Upon his completion of his B.A. he moved to Washington D.C. to pursue professional opportunities aimed at deepening international relations and partnership, particularly through public policy, trade promotion and cultural exchange. Most recently, Yuuki served as attorney-advisor with MetLife’s international business, helping support the company’s strategic positioning in all relevant political, regulatory and legislative areas. Prior to that, he served in the Office of Congressman Gregory Meeks (NY-6). Yuuki is a member of the New York State Bar and the New Jersey Bar. He is also a keen yoga practitioner and triathlete.
He is excited for the opportunity to bring his professional skills and experience to a cause he has been passionate about for a long time.
