Kyodo PR is expanding its international operations with various endeavors to get non-Japanese companies to use the agency’s services when engaging the Japanese market.
For instance, the launch of an integrated marketing communication offering to be led by experienced, capable, and bilingual PR officers with deep knowledge in digitally-driven integrated marketing communications.
Kyodo PR prides itself in the quality and professionalism of its staff and one of them is Ms. Kazuko Suzuki Kotaki, Deputy Director-General of PR Research Institute, who on June 1, 2021, was also appointed as the Vice President of Marketing at the IABC (International Association of Business Communicators) Japan.
