An extensive experience in both TV/film and music publishing puts Hico Koike in a very unique and rare position in the world of entertainment. Since joining Fuji Television Network, Inc. back in 1982, highlights of his brilliant career include a joint venture he established with famed British film producer David Puttnam, which gave birth to critically acclaimed films such as “Memphis Belle”.
A new challenge knocked on his door when he was chosen to run Fuji Entertainment America Inc., now operating as Fuji Music Group Inc. Through this new company under Fuji Media Holdings Inc., established for the purpose of acquiring worldwide rights of musical copyrights, Hico played a leading role in the acquisition of world-famous music catalogues such as Arc Music, the publishing arm of legendary blues record label Chess Records, and lyricist Hal David’s works, best known for his collaborations with composer Burt Bacharach.
One of the most prominent and respected figures in the Japanese Music industry, Ichiro "Ichi" Asatsuma was born in 1943 and joined Pacific Music Publishing (the pre-decessor of Fujipacific) in 1966 as one of its first employees.
His immense love and knowledge of music allowed him to excel at the job and Ichi was recognized as one of the pioneers in the music publishing world. In 1985 he became the President of the newly-merged Fujipacific Music, a position he held until becoming the Chairman in 2005. Ichi has also been the board member of JASRAC from 1986 to 2010 and was the chairman of Japan's Music Publisher's Association (MPA) from 2004 to 2010. He currently serves as the MPA's special adviser as well.
