The general manager, Kanako Endo is currently assigned three positions: planning and sales promotion department manager, and she is also the eldest daughter of the founder’s family. How did she decide to work for KAI? ‘I wanted to work for something I can be proud of and use my abilities to their fullest. If I work for KAI, it will be directly for my family. I can give back to my family by exerting my ability based on what I have learned and studied. I feel that I am fortunate to be in such a situation,’ says Endo.
After working for KAI, she realized that KAI was still a male-oriented company. There was a time that she was the only lady among the other conference members. ‘KAI makes a lot of products for women. To make better products and to spread those products to the world, I feel that the presence of women is very important,’ says Endo.
KOBAKO promotions office is one of the offices she is managing and all of the members of that office are female. Such an office is still very rare at KAI. ‘I am always longing for KAI to be a well-beloved company and for that reason, I would like KAI to become a company where women can play an active part. If I can be any help to make that happen, I can see great value in working for KAI.‘
