Meet the Maestro

Thus, he will continue to work as a CEO and strive to do justice to the position he shoulders.

GCP, according to Masaki is of low profile. And thus, he and the team had difficulty in many activities such as sales activities and advertisements on the web. But eventually he reached the conclusion as he got the familiarity of GCP itself and made a community. It is a community called GCP User Group (GCPUG). This community is spreading in other Asian countries such as Singapore and Vietnam.
