Campaign and content agency Seven46 – part of Havas Sports & Entertainment- has announced that it is establishing a new office in Japan that will be led by Emiri Tokunaga.
Seven46 was the main strategic communications to the Tokyo 2020 Bid Committee for a period exceeding two years. This included serving as the lead advisers on the acclaimed final presentation to the International Olympic Committee. Based in Tokyo, Tokunaga (pictured) is tasked with building on Seven46’s successful work, developing new business opportunities in strategic communications consultancy, editorial services, executive and presentation coaching, training and education.
In particular, she will work with organisers, sponsors, and other stakeholders in the country’s sports sector in the run-up to the 2019 Rugby World Cup and Tokyo 2020 Games.
Seven46 founder and CEO Nick Varley said: “We are delighted to be making this important step in the Japanese market. I am certain that Emiri will prove to be an outstanding ambassador for Seven46, and will help us to grow further in Japan at this exciting time for the country.”
Tokunaga said: “I believe there is a real appetite for such skills in Japan, and look forward to helping Seven46 build a strong base here in Tokyo,” she added.
