"We hired Mel after meeting him at a Tokyo seminar. Although Tsumura is a billion-dollar herbal medicine company in Japan, it had very limited knowledge and experience in U.S. business. Mel proved an awesome pilot, educator and resource. He educated us about the U.S. market and regulations, helped us develop a strategy for a new business in the US, and then guided us through negotiation with pharmaceutical and multilevel marketers." Hideo Anzai, RPh, Principal, Anzai & Associates [Hideo contracted with Mel while head of New York office of Tsumura & Co.]
