New CCCJ Members Summer 2018


Name Alexander Dmitrenko
Company Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer
I am a Canadian with Ukrainian roots. After completing my studies at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law, I worked in Toronto and Montréal from 2002 to 2006. I then moved to New York City, from where my career (luckily) brought me to Tokyo in late 2009. As a lawyer at an international law firm that focuses on compliance and disputes, I devote as much of my time as possible to pro bono and CSR-related initiatives in such areas as human rights and supporting orphanages, which is partly why I wanted to join the CCCJ.

Name Simon Mok
Company GLP
I currently work as a real estate fund manager at global provider of logistics solutions GLP. Born in Toronto in 1989, I lived in China and France as a child. I was awarded a scholarship in 2012 by Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology, and went on to study architecture at The University of Tokyo. After graduating, I joined one of the country’s top construction companies — Taisei Corporation — and later on started a career in consulting at EY Japan when I discovered my strong interest in finance and investments.


Name Patrick Boocock
Company Brookfield Asset Management
Brookfield has been working with Japanese institutions for decades and opened a Tokyo office in 2016. As a long-term owner and operator of real assets, Brookfield has a number of interests in common with corporate Japan. As both Brookfield and I are Canadian, I wanted to join the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Japan to continue to build on the deep relationships held between Japan and Canada and play a vital role in helping Japanese companies carry out corporate governance reforms and resolve succession planning issues.


Small Business

Name Duncan Macintyre
Company SAI Inc.
Originally from Vancouver, I’ve been running SAI Inc. ( in Tokyo since 1991. SAI produces videos and writes ad copy in English and Japanese, mainly for corporate communications. We record voiceovers in our broadcast-ready recording studio in Shirokanedai, Tokyo, and field shoot teams in Japan and abroad. We’re very much focused on developing stories with our clients. My favourite work is interviewing clients, usually in Japanese, as the starting point of video creation.
