MassiveMusic has opened its sixth office and first in Asia in Tokyo.

The Dutch agency, which produces and composes music for the advertising, media and broadcast industries, says the move shows its firm commitment to Asia. The office is located in the Minato ward of Tokyo.

Junya Terui has been named managing director and executive producer of the new office. Tamon Fujimi has joined as business development manager, and Rick Sakurai as creative director and composer.

Terui said the new office will drive local market insights and help MassiveMusic serve clients effectively on the ground.

“Building a conveniently located office and studio in Tokyo allows us to communicate as perfectly with the market as can be,” Terui said in a release.

Hans Brouwer, founder and CEO of MassiveMusic, said the timing was right for the agency, with the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games fast approaching.

“After working on the campaign for the Olympic Games in 2016, we hope we can play a significant role here too,” he said. “With agencies and brands becoming increasingly international, this will have an impact on the projects they work on and is something MassiveMusic can help with, considering our international presence and the array of different services we can offer."
