Kentaro Iemoto is President and Chief Executive Officer of Clara Online, which provides Internet services from locations in Tokyo, Nagoya, Beijing, Taipei and Singapore. Clara's vision is to become the top Internet service platform company in Asia. Iemoto established the company when he was 15 years old. At the age of 12, he developed paraplegia and was told he would be confined to a wheelchair for life. It was from his hospital bed that he first experienced the wonders of the Internet. This experience would forever change his destiny and lead him to founding Clara Online. Iemoto has since made a recovery and leads Clara onto new challenges. This includes serving as Chairman of Sports IT Solution, a Clara subsidiary that combines sports with the Internet to form a productive sports environment fit for the 21st century. He also serves as a Councillor on Japan's Gender Equality Committee.
