About this event

Economics Graduate, Mr. Osawa joined Photo Create as Sales Director in 2003 and became President in 2014. Previous to Photo Create he was with sports brand ASICS.1975年、東京都生まれ。学習院大学経済学部を卒業後、株式会社アシックスに入社。2003年、創業間もない株式会社フォトクリエイトに社員一号として入社。営業本部長、執行役員、取締役を歴任。2014年9月、代表取締役社長に就任。

創業者の白砂氏(しらまさ ※現代表取締役会長)との出会いは、神輿を通じてでした。何度か会ううちに「自分で会社を立ち上げた」と聞いた時は衝撃でした。当時、大手スポーツ用品メーカーのアシックスで営業に従事。会社の枠組みに乗っかっているのが当たり前で先輩たちの姿から10年、20年後の将来が見えていました。かたや、フォトクリエイトは全く将来が見えない。誘われて訪ねた会社は、靴を脱いで上がれば創業者3人だけのマンションの一室でした「アシックスの大澤」としての将来なのか、自分で切り拓くのか。先が見えない世界を切り拓いていくことが私にはとても格好良く思えたのです。やらなければ何も分からないのです。
