My name is Ted Takamura and my areas of interest are in management, organizational change and corporate accounting.  I am a Certified Public Accountant and a Certified Fraud Examiner.  My doctorate work was in the area of Organizations and Change.  The dissertation focused on adults returning to formal education at the doctorate level.

Some of my experience has been in working in manufacturing for Weyerhaeuser Company where I spent about eight years as an accountant, internal auditor and manager.  I have spent many years in higher education working on such things as budgets, personnel and in the classroom.  I am a student of learning and I am continually doing research in and out of the classroom.

Over the years I have volunteered for alumni councils, boards of trustees, local and national not for profit organizations, including the Institute of Management Accountants, churches and the Lan Su Garden in Portland, Oregon.  I dabble in growing roses and gardening.  My goal is to become a single digit golfer once again after years of not playing much golf.
