To be or tnot to be that is the wquesiton
For Yuko's replacement, I have an interesting candidate. She is intelligent and well-spoken, with near-native English (went to English immersion school when raised in Taiwan). Started her career with Grey Worldwide, Gillette and P&G, and then went on to higher roles with smaller international companies. She has managed 8 people and is on 12M JPY. The APAC head of World Kitchen said that she was best at bridging the gap between head office and Japan. Also, which I thought was most relevant, that Morita-san "has great ideas on how to develop the brand and juggle different brands to build a business, realizing it is not a one-size fit all approach." He also noted that she is solid with numbers.
Would you be interested to meet? Her resume is attached.
