Follow Your Nature Spotlight: Norimasa, Akiko, Kenji & Heather

It's our employees' passions that drive Suntory towards excellence in all aspects of our business, from R&D to product development to giving back to society through arts and music. Whether thinking of new products, nurturing the next batch of aged whisky, or providing a platform for future generations to be familiar with classic music, our employees bring a unique approach to their work by following their nature.

As part of our ongoing video series highlighting how Suntory employees live out our global tagline, "Follow Your Nature," we're excited to present the next iteration of videos that show how our employees follow their nature and pursue their individual passions, no matter where they are or what they do.

This month, we hear from:

  • Norimasa, Research Institute, Suntory Global Innovation Center Ltd., on overcoming failures and persevering in R&D;
  • Akiko, Senior Manager, Artistic Programming, Suntory Hall, on the inspiration and joy music brings her every day at Suntory Hall;
