“Hideki Kunugi has been an integral part of the success of ANA worldwide,” Osamu Shinobe, President & CEO of ANA said in a statement announcing Kunugi’s promotion. “While working in procurement, he drove the introduction of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and established ANA as the first and biggest operator of the state-of-the-art aircraft. As head of the Americas, we are confident that Kunugi-san will lead ANA to new growth, and greater customer satisfaction.”
Previously, Kunugi was the Vice President of Purchasing for ANA.
