James G. W. Reed
, Executive Managing Director, Equity Division, Mizuho Securities USA

Japan’s premier used-car dealer Gulliver International Co., Ltd. has built its powerhouse franchise at high speed. Since its 1994 inception, the company has developed a unique and flexible business model, holding cars for only a week before selling them at auction or through its Dolphi net website, instead of being locked into a traditional showroom. Gulliver also hopes to set an example for other Japanese companies through its international aspirations and corporate culture. Gulliver’s Senior Executive Vice President Ikuo Murata joins us to discuss opportunities for foreign investment in this dynamic and rapidly growing firm, as well as the company’s commitment to being an “international” corporate citizen.
