Realizing growth strategy with customer perspective
Our company, CustomerPerspective Inc., started as of October 1, 2018. Through the company, I would like to contribute to growth strategy of clients, taking advantage of my experience in management consulting, and digital marketing in the past 20+ years. Our vision is to be the digital marketing consultancy most trusted by our customers. We want to make progress toward this vision by adopting new technologies and approaches in this industry that sees constant innovation.
The start of the new company resulted from my profound belief that thinking from customer perspective is an approach essential to all businesses. My goal is to exemplify this approach with a broad range of companies through CustomerPerspective, Inc. I learned from my experience that addressing business issues from the perspective of customers allows companies to unify employees, and create excellent services and products. This approach will lead to winning customer trust, and achieving long-term business growth. The name and mission of our company represent such belief.
We look forward to working with executives and leaders of the companies who value our belief. Our goal is to contribute to addressing opportunities of the broad range of companies, regardless of size and nationality.
