HISTORYEstablished in 1995, Washington CORE, L.L.C. has grown into one of the premier independent consulting firms in the U.S. The co-founders, Chiyo Kobayashi and Kiyoshi Nakasaka, laid the foundation for the firm by combining their global business experience with their strong backgrounds in policy research, political advocacy, and business strategy.

Chiyo Kobayashi and Kiyoshi Nakasaka have been a dynamic duo, enabling them to build the firm into a uniquely global, adaptable, and cutting edge resource as ambitious professionals joined the firm.

Over the years Washington CORE has transformed itself from a policy research think tank to a truly global strategic consulting firm. For the last twenty years, Washington CORE has executed more other 30,000 projects for a wide variety of clients. During that time, the company’s core service offerings have expanded in size, industry expertise, global reach, and level of complexity. Washington CORE looks forward to the next twenty years with more zeal and confidence than ever before, and we look forward to turning your strategic challenge into our next accomplishment.
