Hagmans Kemi AB

Executive Consultant

Clear Channel Japan INC

The Company was brand new and was a Joint Venture between Clear Channel INC and Mitsui. As outdoor advertising financed street furniture had been baned in Japan, no knowledge of the concept was available in the country. Clear Channel had therefore appointed the Norwegian CEO and the Norwegian CFO to start up the company. I was asked to consult on the product knowledge. Where and what to buy when it came to light boxes, pillars and busshelters. I also concluded that buying domestically was far too expensive and therefore we had to import products.

It was also my task to teach the 22 Japanese employees the business concept and how this was carried out in Europe and the US.
