Meet the Team 

Axel is the driving force and representative director of Kay Group K.K. His primary passions are his clients—who he partners with for leadership, executive, and performance coaching—and the development of high-performing teams.

A German citizen, born and raised in Japan, Axel has a truly global outlook, having worked in eight countries. He brings more than 25 years of international leadership experience to Kay Group, with positions ranging from sales to regional executive, in Boehringer Ingelheim, Bayer, Eli Lilly, and AstraZeneca in Europe, North America, and East and Southeast Asia.

Axel holds advanced degrees from Harvard University, Stanford University, and the University of Tübingen, Germany, and follows his second passion—teaching—as an adjunct lecturer at Globis Management University in Japan. His clients highly value and appreciate his native-level language skills in English, French, German, and Japanese.

Karin is a partner and COO at Kay Group, with two decades of international management consulting experience at Deloitte in Europe, North America, and East and Southeast Asia.

The leadership challenges that women face, especially in Japan, fueled her desire to make a difference by returning to Tokyo to focus on supporting women in leadership and the next generation of leaders. She uses her extensive consultancy background in life sciences and related industries to help new executives make career decisions and find their voice.

Karin holds advanced degrees in business administration and international relations from Harvard University, Stanford University, the University of Southern California, and the University of Tübingen, Germany. She works with clients in English and German, is a member of the Ethical Coach network, and assists NGOs in Japan and Asia that specialize in young leader development and capacity-building. Her clients highly value and appreciate the safe and non-judgmental space she creates for them.

Working with Kay Group
