Takao Yasuda Biography
Takao Yasuda was born and raised in Japan, but is now a resident of Singapore. In 1980 he founded Don Quijote, a discount retailer, subsequently changing its name to Pan Pacific International Holdings.
The publicly traded business has over 500 stores, and sells a huge range of products from high end watches to food to adult toys. The group took over the running of the UNY supermarket chain from FamilyMart. In recent years, the group has expanded into Southeast Asia, with its Don Donki brand opening its first store in Singapore at the end of 2017.
Takao Yasuda stepped down from his role as CEO and chairman in 2015, but returned to the board just four years later in 2019.
