First, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to our stakeholders for their unfailing support and patronage.
I am Yoshinori Matsuzaki, and I assumed the position of Representative Director, President and CEO on April 1, 2021.
I started my career in a store. Even now, my starting point in business is always the storefront. I intend to apply the experience I have gained on the front lines of meeting customer needs to steer the management.
The most important thing in operating a business like a select shop (a multi-brand specialty store) is to always keep up with the times to meet our customers’ needs. In addition to our products and customer service, we continue to adhere to the foundation of our corporate philosophy, which is our aspiration, and we are reviewing our expressions in response to changes in the times. In order to continue to be an indispensable presence for our customers, we will not be afraid of change, and will continue to take on various challenges by transforming ourselves and responding to the times.
Going forward, we will not limit ourselves to the apparel domain, but will develop businesses bearing the UNITED ARROWS brand name in various domains and help our customers enjoy affluent lifestyles in the new era with “digital” and “sustainable” as our themes. I am convinced that this is the way we will reflect our corporate philosophy—“With sincerity and a sense of beauty, we continually create new tomorrows for our customers, setting the standard for lifestyle culture.”
We are determined to make daily progress by leveraging our experience on the front lines and the vitality of all employees, brainstorming among us, and repeating our actions. As a corporate group that provides high sensitivity and high added value, we will once again build up a track record of satisfying each and every customer.
I would like to sincerely ask our stakeholders for their continued support for the UNITED ARROWS Group.
President and CEO
