Kayo Ikegami

Operations Analyst

Growing up in the highland city of Nagano prefecture, surrounded by mountains on all sides, I always dreamed of living overseas. My journey started when I decided to study abroad in high school. I truly believe it opened my eyes to the world, bringing me to my major in international communications at Japan College of Foreign Languages, and has influenced my decisions determining my current career path.
Prior to joining Xinova, I worked as the office manager at a start-up company and as a school manager at a private English language school. In my eight years here at Xinova, we have gone through system migration three times, which were all successfully completed. As a key member of project team, meticulously planned and executed functionality testing, UAT and data validation for SalesForce and NetDocuments. I’m supporting Innovations Group and Partnership Group as Country Operations for Japan, Korea, India and non-Xinova office countries.
In my free time, I like reading, going for walks around Tokyo, traveling, and enjoying nature.
