I am Masatoshi Machino, and I assumed the position of President and CEO on May 20, 2021.
We are currently facing a very difficult situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with an increase in staying home and the rapid spread of telework.
In the midst of such circumstances, we will work to win the support of our customers and recover our business performance by achieving a lineup of products looking ahead to a new society post-COVID, products that respond in detail to local needs, and a fresh lineup that continues to propose new products.
In addition, we will strive to improve corporate value by expanding and developing our continued efforts in improving inventory efficiency and enhancing web marketing through strengthened cooperation in many aspects—between the head office and regional headquarters and between e-commerce websites and brick-and-mortar stores, for example—and further by creating new services and added value.
