S4Capital’s digital creative practice, MediaMonks will aim to strengthen its end-to-end content, data and digital media offering with the appointment of Takashi Aoki to lead its Japan office.
Previously the General Manager of Saatchi & Saatchi Tokyo, Aoki joins MediaMonks as its Managing Director to further accelerate the digital content transformation in the Japanese market, and to support the company’s clients such as Google, LinkedIn, Mondelez, and Red Bull.
With more than two decades of experience at multiple advertising agencies, Aoki is a brand innovator who’s recently led Publicis Group’s Japan business at Saatchi & Saatchi Tokyo. Before that, he was Tokyo’s Head of Brand and Innovation at J. Walter Thompson Worldwide.
At MediaMonks, Aoki will work together with Ryo Matsuzaki, the ex-Google Marketing Technology specialist and Country Manager of MightyHive Japan, to establish seamless service, and an end-to-end offering of content, data and digital media for the Japanese market.
“Takashi’s track record with major brands in Japan and beyond speaks for itself and is perfectly aligned with our current growth trajectory and future plans for the Japanese market. As everyone knows, Japan is already a hotbed for creativity and innovation, so we’re looking forward to letting Takashi and the team turn the heat up a little,” said Victor Knaap, CEO, MediaMonks.
