Struggling personal care and cosmetics maker Kanebo Ltd. said Friday it will appoint as president Tetsuo Komori, the 47-year-old ex-president of computer information magazine publisher Ascii Corp.

Komori is currently management adviser to investment fund Unison Capital Inc., which was selected on Dec. 16 by the state-backed corporate bailout agency, the Industrial Revitalization Corp. of Japan, as one of three investment funds to acquire Kanebo.
