John Flanagan


John is a marketing and sales professional with over 20 years’ experience in Japan. Career highlights include launching J:COM and running marketing operations at 20th Century Fox, the iTunes division of Apple, Dyson, and the fashion category for Amazon. Currently, he is General Manager for A+E Networks Japan, a subsidiary of the global media and entertainment company A+E Networks.

He graduated from Colorado College with a BA in Political Economy, which included one year’s study at Waseda University in Tokyo. John later attended INSEAD, graduating from the business school’s International Executive Program.

A strong grasp of marketing concepts and theory acts as the sounding board for any marketer as they build strategies to grow their business and launch campaigns. However, one also needs an understanding what happens in the real world.

In addition to advancing student knowledge of marketing, I hope to provide that reality check for class participants.
