Success Stories

Publicly-traded Blue Chip Company

Our client, a publicly listed blue chip company, runs a Japan organization numbering gnarly 3000 people in the manufacturing and service industry. Due to their headquarters requirement to increase the number of female executives in Japan, they had no suitable candidates to take over from the CFO upon his imminent retirement.

We developed a comprehensive market map of female CONTROLLER/CFO candidates overseeing large corporations in traditional industries in Japan. Though our deep cooperation and tenacious efforts, we were able to help them onboard a candidate that both satisfied their discerning and unique needs as a company, as well as the US parent company’s need to modernize the management philosophy of the company globally.
