Enhancing Presence of CTC by Creating a Positive Spiral

Tatsushi Shingu
President and Chief Executive Officer

I am pleased to announce my appointment as President & CEO of ITOCHU Techno-Solutions Corporation (CTC), effective April 1, 2024.

Since its establishment in 1972, CTC has achieved significant growth while meeting the expectations of our customers and society. I have also witnessed CTC’s progress through my engagement in the ICT-related business at ITOCHU Corporation, and I would like to express my deep appreciation for the patronage and support of everyone, including our valued customers and predecessors, who have made it possible for us to take this new step forward. I am committed to striving for further growth by fulfilling my role as the head of CTC, and I would like to ask for your continued guidance and encouragement in this endeavor.

The world is faced with many problems, and it is becoming increasingly unavoidable for companies to address social issues. It will significantly dictate the future course of our growth that how well we can strengthen our management structure to generate revenue by expanding businesses that lead to solving these issues.

In order to achieve the above, we will anew promote business efficiency and cost optimization with IT, and actively invest in growth areas, aiming for a streamlined and lean organization and well-defined management.

On top of that, we will further advance our solutions with AI, enhance our expertise in cutting-edge technologies and deepen our core business areas including cloud-native technologies, while further strengthening our technological capabilities. As CTC builds up a track record of successful projects that leverage our technological capabilities, I believe that it will further enhance our presence and brand value as an IT partner to customers, leading to enrichment of our human resources and, ultimately, further enhancement of our technological capabilities.

By creating such a positive spiral, we aim to grow into a company that can play an even greater role in our society.
