Masaru Tange, president and CEO of Tokyo-based Shift, has joined the ranks of world’s billionaires after shares of his software testing company surged 88% over the past year.

The company’s market value has risen to $3.4 billion as of Friday. Tange, 46, whose stake in Shift is just over a third, has an estimated net worth of $1.1 billion.

Since it was founded in 2005, Shift has acquired at least 23 enterprises, ranging from game software and smartphone app developers to used computer sellers.
