TOKYO - Eyeing global growth, ADK has announced the formation of a new business unit called ADK Global, which will be based in Singapore and led by Rob Sherlock as CEO.


As of January, ADK Global will consolidate ADK's global offices and international clients into a single entity, the company said.
