Tadayoshi 'Taz' Tazaki (1964, Economics) has been admitted as a Foundation Fellow.  He is a generous benefactor of the College in appreciation of his education at Downing.

After working in several City based companies, Tadayoshi Tazaki started his own business, The Japan Agency and Consultancy (JAC), in 1975 to pursue his idea to help and support the growing Japanese business community in the UK.  The company focused on staff recruitment for Japanese companies, rental accommodation for Japanese expatriates (JAC Property) and Japanese food for the Japanese community (Tazaki Foods). 

In 1996 JAC Property expanded outside the Japanese clientele sector to become JAC Strattons and now has several branches in Central and North London with a significant market share of the London residential sales and rentals sectors.  They also now include a division, JAC Interex, providing a comprehensive property ‘design and build’ and refurbishment service for both residential and office premises.
