Q&A with Mike Babbitt

How did you first become interested in the Japan market?

During my work at a previous record company in the early 2000s, we noticed that hi energy music was popular in Japan and wanted to see if our products might work in the market.

What is difficult to do business in Japan, that people might not know is difficult?

In my opinion, American’s have a shock when they first start doing business in Japan. There are expectations that seem to be part of the Japanese culture of business that don’t exist in the same way in the US. An example might be related to Quality Control and what are acceptable allowances. The Japanese level of detail is far superior to the general American level so doing business in Japan requires a cultural shift and mental adjustment to meet the Japanese standards.

What made you decide to do business with Bravo?

Bravo is the best! Simply put, there is not another company we would even consider doing business with. True professionals!

How has it been to do business with Bravo?

I have been working with Bravo for 20 years now and it has been a huge pleasure doing business with the company. The staff is amazing under the leadership of John Boardman. Bravo is a special company and I’ve observed many times when the company made decisions that were difficult but always favored the customer and other businesses. Bravo has big vision and is expansive with the future always in sight.I admire Bravo and am honored to work with this first-class business.
