The World: Tokyo - Dentsu's Akira Kagami takes seat on Naked board

Akira Kagami, the global executive creative officer of Dentsu, has been appointed as a non-executive board director at Naked Communications.

The appointment has been made in an effort to help increase co-operation between the agencies and strengthen their position in the Asia-Pacific market.

As part of the deal, Naked will be able to benefit from Dentsu's scale and resources, while Dentsu will be able to gain access to Naked's intellectual property.

Dentsu has had a minority stake in Naked's Tokyo office since the company established itself in the Japanese market in 2007.
