Chief Strategy Officer(CSO)
Director & Senior Managing Executive Officer
Senior Managing Executive Officer and Chief Strategy Officer Seiji Shintani joined PPIH in 2020.
Starting his career in banking, he later branched out to play roles in corporate management and new business development at entertainment and food-related companies, giving him a rich background of practical experience coupled with exceptional insight.
As the Company's chief strategy officer, Shintani leads the development and implementation of Groupwide management strategies. His efforts in creating the organizational frameworks necessary to transition to a next-generation holding company management system while enhancing corporate planning functions have helped expedite decision-making. Even faced with such great change, Shintani never loses his appetite for a challenge, boldly tackling ambitious ventures.
His favorite excerpt from "The Source" ("Genryu") is in Precept 5 of The Six Precepts of Our Management Philosophy. There, it says that We are unhesitant in the face of daunting challenges, and unafraid to beat a rapid retreat when a cold, hard look at reality tells us this is the best course. Others come from Article 10-10 of Ten Precepts Relating to Employee Mindset and Conduct: Rather than accept the seeming incompatibility of two options, figure out how to make them work together.
