SINGAPORE — Princeton Digital Group (PDG), Asia’s leading data center provider, has announced the appointment of Yoshinaga Takahashi as Managing Director of Japan. Yoshinaga will drive the execution of PDG’s Tokyo project as well as develop and execute the company’s long-term growth strategy. In June 2021, PDG announced its flagship Japan project, a ~100 MW data center campus, in Saitama City, located north of central Tokyo.
Yoshinaga is a 22-year veteran of Mitsui & Co, with deep experience in industrial real estate development and infrastructure investment. He was most recently General Manager at Mitsui, where he built and led a strong team and was responsible for all the investments and execution of the company’s real estate projects across Southeast Asia and China.
“I am excited to have Yoshi as part of my global leadership team as we strengthen our presence in Japan,” said Rangu Salgame, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, and Co-Founder of PDG. “Japan is a strategic market with massive potential for growth. Under Yoshi’s leadership and direction, I am confident that PDG will become one of the largest and most reputed operators in the country backed by a team of highly experienced data center professionals.”
PDG’s construction of its data center campus in Saitama city is well underway and is scheduled for completion in 2024. Headquartered in Singapore, PDG is on an accelerated growth journey, with 20 data centers located in China, Singapore, India, Indonesia, and Japan, which are designed to support the expansion of hyperscalers and enterprises across the region.
Yoshinaga shared, “I am thrilled to join PDG and am looking forward to building Saitama as a data center hub to serve the Tokyo market demand as well as enter new markets in Japan. I strongly believe that PDG’s solid track record coupled with its leadership vision and blue-chip investors will help us become the partner of choice for hyperscalers in this exciting market.”
