Since his release in 1990 as a Mission President, Pres. Niiyama has served as a Regional Representative in Japan, among other callings. From April 2002 to April 2008 he served as an Area Authority. He was responsible for Church Public Affairs in Japan.

Elder Niiyama also currently is President and CEO of the Selnate Group of Companies, which include Interac Co., Ltd., Selnate Co., Ltd.

Update 29 Apr 2017: (courtesy Tracy Rogers)


It is with regret that I inform you of the passing of President Niiyama. Please see below for the official announcement from the Asia Area North Presidency.
I was informed last September that President Niiyama had serious cancer (I believe lung cancer) and was seeking treatment, but that he did not want word to be spread around and I was asked to keep it confidential. His greatest desire was to be able to finish his calling as the Tokyo Temple President, a 3-year calling. Having had the privilege of seeing him regularly over many of the years since his mission service, it seems clear he didn’t want his illness to detract from the Work he continued to do—he wanted focus to remain off him personally and stay on temple work. In recent weeks and months as his health deteriorated, more and more people became aware of the situation. He just celebrated his 73rd birthday this past Tuesday, the 25th of April.

May the Lord bless Sister Niiyama and their children at this time of loss, and with you and your loved ones as well.
Sincerely,
Tracy Rogers
