Inc., a global strategic consulting firm, on Thursday announced that Glen Fukushima, president of the American Chamber of Commerce in Japan, has become its president.

Fukushima, who was vice president of AT&T Japan Ltd., the wholly-owned subsidiary of AT&T Corp. in the U.S., assumed the current position on May 18, the firm said.

Fukushima will be in charge of the Japan operations of Massachusetts-based Arthur D. Little Inc., which is the oldest and one of the largest strategic consulting firms in the world with more than 3,500 professionals in over 30 countries.

“I think it’s a very exciting time to be a management consultant because changes are taking place in the marketplace,” said Fukushima, adding that globalization, new technologies and innovation are becoming extremely important for determining competitiveness of corporations.

Between 1988 and 1990, Fukushima served as deputy assistant U.S. trade representative for Japan and China.
