The future of Japan’s hospitality: female empowerment and international expansion according to Toyoko Inn

06 février 2018

Comité Women in Business

The Women in Business Committee is pleased to invite as a speaker Maiko Kuroda, President and Chief Executive Officer of Toyoko Inn. 30 years after its establishment, Toyoko Inn has become the first hotel chain in Japan with 5000 rooms. Targeting domestic business travelers, it has maintained their concept of “providing clean, secure and affordable rooms” while actively pursuing international expansion in recent years and will open next spring the “Toyoko Inn Marseille Saint-Charles” in France. 

Maiko Kuroda has an unusual background. She joined Toyoko Inn in 2002 and worked for 3 years before she came back in 2008. She was promoted president in 2012. Having boosted profit tenfold, she’s now eyeing markets in Europe and North America.

The huge turnaround of the company isn’t the only story that makes Kuroda stand out in the corporate scene. Rather it’s her advancement of a strategy prioritizing women in the hiring of managers that is seen as unusual: women account for 98% of the managers of the company’s more than 250 hotels, whereas men hold about 93% of management roles in Japan.

Maiko Kuroda will address the topic of hotel management by female managers and the company’s international expansion.
