During her varied day, Ana sees herself as a connector, by establishing good relationships and collaborating with the country teams, and with product divisions, to make activities cohesive and outstanding. Keeping up with the trends inside and outside of Fujifilm and looking for opportunities to communicate the brand in a unique way is what keeps her going.

Here it is helpful to bring a huge dose of resilience, empathy and respect for everyone’s opinions.

Besides a full-time job and constant education to keep her skills up to date, she is a mother of a 7-year-old girl and has three dogs. The key to balancing all these things in her professional and private life is for her: Time management.

How Fujifilm’s Innovation Has Made It Prime for the 21st Century

Once best known as a leading maker of photographic film, Fujifilm has reinvented itself through innovation and diversification into new business areas.
“How Fujifilm’s Innovation Has Made It Prime for the 21st Century” is an interview with Teiichi Goto, President of FUJIFILM Holdings, who talks about Fujifilm’s innovation, leadership, and other features.

“We utilized our expertise in the photographic industry to build a new base for the business, allowing our extensive portfolio to become highly rational and technologically in sync. Under the slogan of “a second foundation”, we implemented a series of reforms which allowed us to not only survive, but thrive as a first-rate enterprise.”

Teiichi Goto, CEO, Fujifilm Holdings

Since its founding in 1934, as a maker of photographic film, Fujifilm’s story has been one of technological excellence and diversification in keeping with changing times. Foreseeing the advancement of digitization in the marketplace, it boldly embarked upon the challenge of developing digital imaging cameras and other key technologies in the digital era.

With demand for photographic film declining sharply since 2000, Fujifilm leveraged its expertise to push growth in healthcare, materials, and business innovation.

Fujifilm’s corporate slogan, “Value from Innovation”, reflects its commitment to creating innovative technologies, products, and services to provide new value to the world by taking on challenges and growing together with the spirit of “NEVER STOP”.

The two phrases “express our corporate stance, our DNA, and represent our strong will to continue to improve and make society, the world, and the future better,” says Goto.

Teiichi Goto puts emphasis on “trust” and “integrity”, which he describes as “the most important values underlying the corporate culture of the Fujifilm”. This has set the foundation for the company, and it will continue to grow its business through implementing new initiatives with an eye on the future.
