Naoko Okumura (奥村 直子) - e-Commerce and Fashion Brand Professional
From the organising the business operational structure, researching and buying, managing the online store to the marketing and promotion of the brand and products, my experience is managing the entire process of running a successful e-Commerce operation in the Japan. I am able to bring this experience to help current operations improve and achieve their goals, as well as lead the establishment of an online Japanese store and run it successfully.
When given charge of the e-Commerce division in my previous career, I increased sales 200% within two months. After two years of managing the digital brand and store, myself and my team achieved an overall increase in sales and profit of 320%. Through understanding the particular market and the various methods learnt running an online brand I can apply my experience to making other e-Commerce operations successful.
As well as business operations, store management and marketing, I also had a role as a fashion buyer, regularly travelling overseas, selecting the merchandise and arranging its return to Japan. This is a role from my experience I am also able to assist or manage with. Also within my role I frequently arranged and managed modelling shoots for our products and organised exhibitions in Tokyo for products and fashion lines. Both are within my capability and considered inclusive in the service I offer as a specialist and consultant.
I enjoy the challenge of meeting targets and enjoyment in achieving them in my work.
