99.7% of all companies in Japan are small and medium sized companies (SMEs).
And these companies desire excellent talent more than ever in order for their own growth and for the Japanese economy to keep growing strong. I have heard so many CEOs of such companies say they are struggling to acquire good talent.

We have been successful in introducing women managers, directors and role-model leaders to more than 300 companies in various industries since 2007. And we have seen so many talented women who gave up working in large listed Japanese companies because of the male-dominated culture and the limited chance for those women to succeed in that Japanese corporate culture.

There are thousands of such untapped high-potential women candidates, among both Japanese and non-Japanese women, who are eager to make a contribution to smaller-sized companies. While top-tier talented men will never leave their safe, cozy big companies, top-tier talented women are getting fed up with these big companies and looking for a better chance. The possibility of success in headhunting is higher by far for such women compared to men.
There are not many matching opportunities for such talented women and SMEs (both Japanese and non-Japanese companies) in Japan. In addition, you won’t find those top talented women through a regular recruitment companies because these women don’t show up in regular recruitment companies, which are also overwhelmingly male-oriented. We are a pioneer in specializing in searching for women leaders and we would like to introduce to enthusiastic CEOs our special methods for finding those talented women.

Our strategy is
1) We focus only on talented women who are eager to work in and make a contribution to SMEs.
2) We work together with CEOs directly and mitigate HR involvement.
3) We source candidates by headhunting active women leaders.
If the CEO is truly enthusiastic about utilizing this untapped talent pool for their growth, industry and size of the company will not matter.
You will surly find the right talent for your company through us.

Whether you are in manufacturing, finance, consumer goods, advertising, marketing, business consulting, healthcare, food and beverage, import and export industry, we cover all of these industries. We search top-tier female talent in fields of marketing, human resources, finance, law, sales, public relations, IR, general affairs, COOs, CFOs, CIOs, CMOs, outside board directors and CEOs. We are happy to be of service to you and confident we can produce results.
