Junko concluded a notable search with Bo Concept and below the former President expresses his thanks:
Junko Yoshizumi assisted us in an intensive search for a new President for BoConcept Japan K.K. Under considerable time pressure, she was able to find an impressive range of strong candidates with excellent backgrounds within the retail industry. We finally succeeded in signing an experienced and very suitable new head of our Japanese operation within approx. 2 month of starting the process thanks to the diligent and persistent efforts of RGF Executive Search Japan and Junko.
Prior to choosing to work with RGF Executive Search Japan on this assignment we met with all the big global recruiting agencies, but in the end we decided to go with RGF Executive Search Japan because of our strong belief in Junko, who had already placed most of our management positions in our Japanese organization.
Allan G. Petersen, President BoConcept Japan K.K. (until June 2008)
