Tokyo, Japan (PRWEB) July 20, 2012
GMO Internet Group company, GMO Research and its subsidiary GMO Japan Market Intelligence (GMO Research/JMI) have recently appointed Sarah Jang as a Senior Business Development Director for North America as the company prepares for its expansion in the region.
Jang has had a stellar career in the industry, and is well known among her peers for being the driving force behind AIP Corporation’s sales activities in the US. She has vast experience in online survey research, which was garnered at AIP Corporation in Japan as well as at AIP NY CO LTD in New York. Jang says, “What most impresses me about GMO Research/JMI is the depth and breadth of market research expertise on Asian Markets throughout the organization. I am eager to bring these resources to our clients throughout North America.”
Another important task for Jang will be to support the setup of the first GMO Research/JMI office in the US. Having identified increasing business opportunities in North America, GMO Research/JMI plans to open a US West Coast office later this year.
Following GMO Research/JMI’s establishment of a European office in the UK earlier this year, the US office will be the next step in the company’s ongoing international expansion. The initial aim of expanding GMO Research/JMI’s overseas presence is to enhance communications and services to international clients seeking to carry out research in Asia.
GMO Research/JMI CEO Shinichi Hosokawa stated, “We are extremely excited to launch our US office, and I have strong confidence in Sarah’s experience and wide range of industry contacts to expand our business throughout North America.”
While Jang has already officially joined GMO Research/JMI, she will remain at its Tokyo headquarters until the end of August. North American time zones will be fully covered from September.
