ADK Emotions NY, licensors of the global Beyblade Burst franchise, has appointed Shunichi Ogawa as its new president and CEO.
Ogawa joined ADK in 2005, managing marketing and advertising strategies for various global brands. He previously served on the ADK Emotions NY board of directors and now leads the overseas business division as CEO covering North America, China and Asia.
Former president Shuji ‘Shawn’ Wada will continue to spearhead ADK Emotions and remain on the board of directors for both Tokyo and New York offices.
“There has never been a more exciting time for Beyblade and Anime-based brands globally,” said Ogawa. “We believe that there is so much more potential to engage with our fervent fanbase and lots of untapped opportunities within our portfolio. We move forward and look to the future as a team with optimism and enthusiasm.”
