After researching, visiting and gauging the viability of the Japanese market, Atheneum’s CEO and founder Mathias Wengeler is determined that now presents the right time to make a formal entrance into the country. ‘’I’m excited to announce the next phase of our long -term investment and presence in Japan: a new office in Roppongi, Tokyo.
