■Comments from both presidents (from press conference)
・SOMPO Holdings Group CEO, Director, Representative Executive Officer and President Mikio Okumura
“In order to realize the Sompo Group’s goal of “Toward a future filled with security, safety, and health,” we would like to create a world-class country with a long life expectancy and a society that views aging in a positive manner. From this point of view, the RIZAP Group has a complementary business model that the Sompo Group does not yet have, such as specific fitness services and digital contact points. I believe that their challenging spirit and business development will have an extremely positive effect on us, and that they will be our best partner in terms of corporate culture.We look forward to working together to realize our vision.”
・RIZAP Group President and Representative Director Ken Seto
“Customers’ needs for self-actualization are fulfilled, not only by improving their physical health, but also by becoming mentally and socially healthy.In order to provide these services, we are
reinventing the concept of exercise. By changing the way we enjoy exercise, whether it’s through self-esthetics or karaoke, and redefining the way we perceive exercise, we can make exercise a part of our lives. By collaborating with the Sompo Group, we are connecting various data and discovering new indicators of behavior and exercise that support health, which we will use to redefine our products and services. I’m sure there will be many more in the future, but I would like both companies to work together to overcome them and take on the challenge so that in a year’s time, people will be thinking, “It’s amazing that such a service was created.”
