Tak leads the Global Access client relations team responsible for the implementation and ongoing management of the company’s technology and logistics services to ensure the achievement of client’s global expansion business and brand objectives.
Born and raised in Tokyo, Tak came to Los Angeles after graduating university with a degree in International Studies, and soon entered the world of marketing as a senior account executive for a promotional marketing firm with $500 million in annual revenue. Tak was an integral part of their international account management team, heading up accounts such as McDonald’s, Chevron, and Ralston Purina (now Nestlé). He then contributed to a full-service international marketing and communication firm through an integrated mix of print, radio, television and online advertising, along with public relations duties.
After moving to Salt Lake City, in the late 1990’s, Tak joined a publicly-traded online direct selling firm as the director of marketing, where he oversaw various marketing programs and campaigns designed to enhance the firms rewards and loyalty program through a multitude of online and offline strategies. In early 2002, Tak met Global Access founder Chris Boyle, and believed he could help Chris provide solutions to emerging US companies, working towards his vision of a word of international commerce without borders or boundaries.
Tak has been a part of Global Access since the beginning, and has applied his deep understanding of the multicultural and multilingual space alongside his unique mix of experience in account services and strategic marketing to the firm’s clients. Tak helps Global Access’ clients understand how products and brands can best organically integrate into specific markets to promote tremendous returns on their investments. His precedent-setting innovative as well as cost and expense savings solutions as clients’ advocate have been helping them tremendously, leading to the development of long-term strategic partnerships with them.
