Why Benkei?

Benkei (pronounced ben-K-E) is the name of the company and its main brand.

Benkei (弁慶) was a warrior monk (sohei), the companion of samurai Minamoto no Yoshitsune. Described as having great strength and great loyalty, he is a popular subject in Japanese folklore. While his existence is proven, it is now impossible to separate truth from legend in the accounts of his life.

As a consulting company, Benkei draws from the values of loyalty and honor of this legendary character, and from his ability to "put himself at the service of".
