President & CEO
Shiseido Travel Retail
The travel retail landscape has seen an unprecedented level of change, with technological advancements and the growth of air travel creating a truly globalized territory of mobile shoppers. Since its founding in 1872, Shiseido has always strived to serve the interests of consumers, but today, their needs, lifestyles and values are more diverse than ever, and their desires increasingly rooted in self-actualization, meaning and happiness.
At Shiseido Travel Retail, we want to go beyond simply addressing basic beauty needs. Cultivating genuine relationships and inspiring people to live beautifully are at the heart of our consumer-centric approach, embodied by the Japanese concept of omotenashi – a rich connection in which trust, hospitality and respect are interwoven.
Through best-in-class retail, customer service excellence and close partnerships with our retailers, we aim to create journeys of discovery for our global travelers; uniquely immersive experiences that connect them to their inner selves and our brands through meaningful beauty. Underpinned by our Japanese heritage, we take pride in being the flagbearer for our global brands on the world stage, where Shiseido’s beauty, art and culture can shine.
To realize our mission, we recognize that our people are the key to bringing dynamic and creative innovations which deliver unique experiences to travelers around the world. Embracing a ‘People First’ mindset, we believe that our diverse and multi-national team is a continuous source of innovation, driving Shiseido Travel Retail in our pursuit of becoming a globally trusted beauty company.
