(TOKYO) — Veson Nautical, a leading provider of commercial maritime software and services, has opened a new office in the Akasaka district of Tokyo. The office will serve as a base of operations for Veson Nautical in Japan, and will house dedicated commercial and professional services experts for the country.
“The Asia-Pacific region has always been important to Veson Nautical’s global operations, but it is a large area to cover out of one regional office,” said John Veson, founder and CEO of Veson Nautical. “This expansion to Japan will enable our team to engage deeply with existing clients and build new, long-term relationships with others in the Japanese maritime industry.”
Tokio Mitsuda will lead the new office, having served previously as the president of Marcura Japan KK. Mitsuda brings nearly 30 years of professional maritime experience to his role, the past 15 years of which has been focused on business development in Japan.
“Veson Nautical’s software and services fill a true need in Japan’s commercial maritime market,” said Mitsuda. “I have seen the benefit this tool brings to our current clients in Japan, and I know many other companies can use the Veslink IMOS platform to optimize their commercial maritime operations.”
Veson Nautical has provided solutions for a number of Japanese majors for over seven years, including MOL, NYK, “K” Line, Marubeni Corp., and others. As the company continues to experience rapid global growth, Veson Nautical is dedicating resources to Japan in order to best serve existing customers and expand operations in the region.
“Opening this new office reflects our commitment to the Japanese market,” said Veson. “This allows us to increase our engagement with existing clients and establishes a base of resources to support continued growth in the region.”
