Kyoko Sawanobori,
Hauni Japan Co. Ltd., Tokyo (Japan)

My field of responsibilities:
In my job as an accountant at Hauni Japan, I am responsible for keeping the entire accounts of the Business Area Tobacco’s relatively small location, comprising 32 employees. In addition, my responsibilities also include supporting the local management in conjunction with management accountancy questions.

My working day:
In my capacity as an accountant, I maintain contacts not just with my colleagues and the management team here on the ground, but also the Hauni Headquarters in Germany as well as suppliers, customers or banks. A special aspect of my job is the fact that because of the considerable time difference relative to Germany, I need to schedule all local tasks such as the recording of incoming or outgoing invoices or travel expenses for the morning, in order to be available to contact Headquarters in Hamburg in the afternoon, if necessary. The centerpiece of my responsibilities is not just compiling and processing corresponding data for financial reporting on an ongoing basis, but also assuming management accountancy tasks for the local management team. For my job, this means it is very important that I am able to make effective use of various accounting software programs.

My path to Hauni:
After qualifying as an accountant in Japan, I worked in a variety of positions as an accountant for a number of American and Germany companies. Once I joined Hauni in 2007 I was able to expand my spectrum of responsibilities in particular to include management accountancy tasks, which I find very exciting.

Why Hauni?
People here in Japan love sophisticated technology. As the market and technology leader with a great deal of innovative and high-quality products, Hauni enjoys an excellent reputation in Japan. This also makes me proud when I’m phoning customers or suppliers.
