I am glad to introduce our team in Japan, led by Junichi Fujimoto as CEO of FON Japan. Tomoyasu Chigahara, President, Munekazu Mishima and Nina Nikkhou are talso team members of FON in Japan.

I know my tone sounds like a FON promotion and in a way it is, as this is the blog of the entrepreneur who is building FON, but I don´t have any problems confessing that my happiness comes from the fact that we were trying to have Junichi Fujimoto run Japan for many months and I am so happy he accepted to do so.

Welcome Junichi and his team!
