Asia-Pacific – Global partnership management platform impact.com has announced the opening of its new office in Tokyo, Japan to further expand its business operations in the Asia-Pacific region.

The Japan team will be led by Country Manager Ryo Matsuzaki, who brings in a decade of technology, marketing, and sales experience to his new role. Matzusaki previously held senior sales and technology leadership roles at Appier Group and Google/DoubleClick. He was also Media.Monks’ first country manager in Japan for three years before moving to impact.com.

The expansion allows their platform and clients to create new partnerships worldwide, gain further traction in key verticals like fashion in Milan, and hire diverse leaders and market experts all over the world.

“impact.com’s roster of customers in Asia continues to grow at a rapid pace. Our expansion across Asia-Pacific over the last few years is further strengthened by the growth potential we see in the region. This is part of our commitment to broaden our local presence to effectively enable and support the creation and expansion of partnerships in these markets,” said impact.com Managing Director for APAC Adam Furness.

He also added, “We are excited to continue building innovative partnership technology solutions that support the forward thinking brands and creators we work with on a global scale.”

The new Japan team is expected to manage impact.com’s local customers and actively develop a network of top regional publishers and new businesses in the market. The company also aims to further its investment in additional resources to customise and localise its solutions in the new markets.

Furthermore, the APAC team will be assisted by impact.com’s recent senior hires: Country Manager for Indonesia Myre Gustam and Partner Development Manager for Southeast Asia Cris Tan.

With the Japan office launch, impact.com is now represented in 20 locations worldwide – seven in Europe and seven in Asia, including the newly opened offices in Milan, Italy, and Paris, France. The company is also seeing regional growth over the last three years after entering the Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia markets.
