6th Generation Brewer Sato Jumpei's Resume
First Of All ("TATENOKAWA" Newspaper 9/12/2011 )
Hello everyone, my name is Sato Jumpei and I am the CEO of TATENOKAWA, Inc.
Allow me to take this moment to thank you all for your continued support and patronage.
2011 is almost behind us. A lot has happened this year, but the one event that has left the biggest impression on me has to be of course the Great North East Japan Earthquake. Having lived almost 33 years relatively care free, it had never occurred to me how hard it would be to live without power and water.
As well as realising the importance of having flowing water and electricity, in that moment, I also felt the fragility of modern society. The question of how we learn from this disaster is one that my company must also urgently address.
However, thanks to all the support we have received since September, we have successfully completed another brewing year. I feel very thankful and glad to be alive.
Well then, following that rather long winded introduction, from this month, I will begin documenting my story so far in the "TATENOKAWA" Newspaper, a bit like the 'My Resume' article that appears in the Nikkei Newspaper. This is an idea thought up by my sales team to allow you get to know me a bit better. I am not sure how interesting the content will be, but I hope to write the sort of article that keeps you coming back for more every month.
