Tokyo office opening

The Roppongi Hills Club, high above the Tokyo skyline, provided the stunning venue for the April opening party for Clarksons Platou's Tokyo office.  250 local and a few international guests and employees enjoyed cocktails and canapés as they celebrated Clarksons long connection with the Japanese market and its first office in the country.  Based in the heart of Tokyo and close to all the major Japanese ship owners, operators, charterers, trading houses and shipyards, the office is headed up by MD Robert Chie.
Welcoming guests to the event, Robert Chie, said "Clarksons Platou Tokyo reflects Clarksons long history of working with major Japanese shipping companies, stretching back more than 80 years.  Clarksons' long term relationships with these companies ensures that we are able to offer the best in class servicing of our clients' chartering and project needs within the Dry Cargo and Container sectors."
