KK: What is Ecco all about?
More than 350 million pairs of ECCO shoes have walked the earth since 1963, when Karl Toosbuy founded the company in Denmark. ECCO is one of the few major shoe manufacturers in the world to own and manage every step of the shoemaking process – from leather production through manufacturing in its own factories and all the way to its stores. ECCO’s Scandinavian design philosophy, “The shoe must follow the foot”, is guiding the company. ECCO creates high-comfort, functional, stylish shoes and timeless bags, accessories, small leather goods and shoe care products. Still family owned, ECCO is headquartered in Denmark and employs more than 19,500 people of 57 nationalities worldwide. ECCO products can be found in the 1,100 ECCO stores and 14,700 other sales locations in more than 90 countries. In Japan, we currently have 38 doors and have plans to open more in the next 5 years.

KK: What about your hobbies? What do you do when you are not sitting at your desk?
OR I would spend it on our travel overseas. I am very interested in going to Antarctica, or a diving trip in Malaysia or Palau.
My favorite dish is frikadeller with fresh fennel salad!
