Hans Wallberg joins us today to talk about the service and products of RingaH, how he entered Japanese market in 2009, and what challenges he face in the current economy. He also reveals his thoughts on how do they build credibility and trust when trying to create new relationship and partnerships with the Japanese, and how does Japanese market differ from others. Tune in to find out what advises Hans gives to young entrepreneurs who are building up their business in Japanese market.

After having lived in several places around the globe and working in positions ranging from hotel waiter to Director of Guest Services Hans decided to settle down in Tokyo in 2004. During his hotel career he worked with several international five star hotel chains like Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts. After his hotel career he entered the consulting business for close to 3 years. Following a turbulent 2009 Hans decided to start his own company, RingaH, which in the same year gained the sole distribution rights for a Swedish skin care by the name of Marja Entrich. Since February of this year they are pushing forward with their sales efforts and are now selling in 9 stores around Tokyo.
