Kinoshita joined Toei in 2004 as director of business planning. Since, Kinoshita has also served as chief financial officer, secretary and treasurer, director of contents business department and director overseas strategy promotion of Toei Animation Inc.
“I am pleased to begin this important new assignment with Toei Animation and look forward to working with our talented management and staff as we work together to further expand our global operations,” says Kinoshita. “Three decades ago, Japanese animation was an internationally obscure art form, popular primarily in Japan. Since then, Toei Animation has played a pivotal role in helping make anime the worldwide phenomenon it is today. Moving forward, Toei will continue its global leadership role as we build on our partnerships with the world’s most prestigious players in traditional and digital media.”
