UK King Honours NTT Chairman Jun Sawada

Mr Sawada, Chairman and Member of the Board of Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT), served as the Group's President and Chief Executive Officer from 2018 until 2022. In the latter role he oversaw significant NTT investment into the United Kingdom and made a major contribution to strengthening business ties between the UK and Japan, including through the establishment of the global headquarters of NTT Ltd in London in 2019. The selection of London was a demonstration of confidence in the UK's business environment and talent, and helped to influence wider investment into the UK from other players in the technology sector.

Under Mr Sawada's leadership, NTT has made a major contribution to improving the skills of UK workers in areas of technology such as software development and Quality Assurance and Testing through apprenticeship schemes. They also made an important contribution to the DRIVE project at Great Ormond Street Hospital, which is using the latest technology to provide safer, better and kinder care.
