The Sannam S4 Group announces the appointment of Jonathan Scharf as a Senior International Consultant for Sannam S4 Inc. in the United States. Bringing a wealth of experience to Sannam S4’s North American client base Jonathan will focus on driving business success for Sannam S4’s clients in overseas markets, a skill he has long been recognized for.
Jonathan’s entire 30-year career has been spent in the international arena. He is a global sales leader with diverse experiences creating and executing market entry and international growth strategies in the United States and Asia, especially Japan, Korea, China, Southeast Asia and India. As a market entry and market expansion consultant, he thrives in creating and managing high-performance global sales, marketing and service teams. His expertise also includes creating highly productive corporate alliances and international partnerships with independent channels of distribution across major industries.
“We are delighted to welcome Jonathan to our expanding US team. Jonathan brings a particular type of experience and expertise which is focused on improving international sales growth for US companies. His track record in doing this directly for US companies and in his previous consulting roles will add a valuable dynamic to Sannam S4’s clients as they seek further international success and a strong return on their foreign investments. Sannam S4’s support in providing local market information, the advice around and management of finance, accounting, tax and HR issues and our unique U.S. Business Centers environment for a trusted launch pad for U.S. companies and institutions overseas is well established.” says Adrian Mutton, Founder & CEO of Sannam S4.
Jonathan spent 7 years as an expat in Tokyo, Japan and another 7 years living in Singapore, whilst working throughout the Southeast Asia region. Since relocating back to the US in 2002, Jonathan has spent 15 years ‘commuting’ to and from New Jersey to Asia, leading the business expansion efforts of several large private and publically traded US companies in the region in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, India and the Middle East.
“With Jonathan’s appointment we are now providing our clients with additional dedicated support to help them improve and accelerate their export success internationally” says Mutton.
Jonathan served as a client-side leader on multiple consulting engagements with McKinsey & Company. He continues to successfully drive positive changes in cross-border teams and excels in analytical, technical, creative and multicultural environments. Jonathan has a strong reputation for quickly and effectively simplifying the complexities normally associated with international market entry and expansion. Jonathan guides Sannam S4 clients to achieve the seemingly unachievable, wth a focus on driving the growth of their sales and profitability in international markets.
“I look forward to working with the Sannam S4 team and our clients to help further expand into new markets around the world. This is a tremendous opportunity for companies of all sizes to grow their international business outside of their normal comfort zone and quickly realize new top and bottom line growth. I foresee an exciting journey to the expanding team at Sannam S4,” said Jonathan Scharf.
Jonathan’s appointment follows recent hires from Sannam S4 in Raleigh NC, New York NY, San Diego CA and Washington D.C. as it continues its impressive growth in the United States since establishing its U.S. headquarters in 2016.
