Yamamoto said international brands often struggle in Asia.

“Asia is comprised of diverse cultures and consumer behaviours, all at different stages of economic development. Our international clients often face challenges to breakthrough in these diverse markets,” he said.

“With our Singapore office we will enable our clients to strengthen their foothold in Asia with more timely and in-depth insights into local cultural nuances which, in turn, will inform strategy that ensures smarter, more confident branding decisions.”
