Intralox L.L.C. (Japan) Marc Bolduc
Intralox is the leading conveyance solutions provider that helps to move the world’s most critical products. Intralox L.L.C. (Japan) has been active in the Japanese market for the past 25 years and is looking to further its commercial reach, not only in Japan, but also in the APAC region. With the adoption of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership, Intralox would like to work very closely within this framework and, thus, sees being a member of the CCCJ as an excellent platform for these endeavours. Marc Bolduc, a long-time member and present CCCJ governor, is the representative director of Intralox Japan.
Randstad K.K. Paul Dupuis
Originally from Windsor, Ontario, my first trip to Japan was in 1990, when I arrived in Osaka. My six-month backpacking adventure has led to a lifetime connection with Japan. In fact, I was an active member of the CCCJ in the past. I returned to Japan (again) in 2021 from India to lead Randstad Japan. The CCCJ is about building bridges and communities, in business and beyond. I’m looking forward to getting involved in the chamber and supporting it in the spirit of “doing well and doing good.”

Wayfarer Winston Chu
After eight years of managing investments in global technology companies, I wanted to be on the other side — to build. This brought me to Japan, where I co-founded Wayfarer, a hospitality proptech startup. Being new to Japan, it was important for me to get to know people from similar roots. Building a community is hard but also rewarding; I hope to be able to help the CCCJ grow, so more Canadians can thrive in Japan.
YUZEN Translation Geoffrey England
We are a specialist translation company based in the center of Tokyo. We have completed several successful projects, mainly for the energy, environment and shipping industries. As co-founder of YUZEN Translation, I am responsible mainly for marketing and business development. I am also very much involved with translation and proofreading. Already we have translated vaccination-related and official documents for our Canadian clients, and wish to build strong relations with the CCCJ.
I am a Vancouverite who has lived in southern Yokohama for close to 30 years. I am a graduate of UBC and McGill MBA Japan’s inaugural class of 2000. Recently, I left the medical device industry and am now the APAC marketing manager for Epiq, a global legal services firm. I am also very active in the McGill Alumni Association in Japan and, feeling I was long overdue in becoming an active member in the broader Canadian community in Japan, I have decided to join the CCCJ.
Originally from Belgium, I have more than 20 years’ international experience as a design consultant and creative director. From 1999 to 2006, I was based in Montréal, where I developed my own business and counted among my clients such prestigious companies as Adidas, L’Oréal, Merrell and Bell Canada. I moved to Osaka in 2006 and began working for IDA, later moving to Singapore with the company. I returned to Japan in 2017 and am now based in Tokyo as an independent consultant and producer.
