Hello, my name is Raphaël Mazoyer. I was born in 1978 in France. (The photo above is now 10 years old… There’s more gray in the hair now.)
As a digital marketing specialist, I try to keep myself at the crossroads of business, contents, design and technology.
Currently, as manager of the global Digital Marketing team for ASICS, I look after the European online activities of the Japanese sports equipment brand famous for its running shoes, as well as for our lifestyle brand Onitsuka Tiger.
After 5 years as a one-person web operation, I joined forces with three partners I had been working with on and off for some time, and in early 2004, we formally launched the digital agency Splandigo.
Splandigo created quality web sites by delivering consistent quality accross concept and implementation. Within the company, I developed the offers for our larger clients. I was in charge of the technological aspects, and often served as project manager and worked on sales. My longest-running project was the web site for the RINO, and my coolest was the SAIL’05 site. I left Splandigo in the Summer of 2005. The company stopped operating in 2006.
For a couple of years, I was responsible for the European consumer operations of Japanese weather forecast agency Weathernews, and took care of the mobile and web services.
I joined the Montreal-based digital branding agency CloudRaker as a producer and later account manager, and I took care of the company’s Amsterdam operations for a while.
In 2008, I joined the European headquarters of ASICS, as digital communications manager, and in 2011 moved over to Kobe, to improve the company’s global digital efforts.
A founding member of French co-operative web hosting provider Ouvaton, I was elected in May 2003 to the board of directors for a 3-years mandate, and returned to the “rank and file” of the group in 2006. I worked on upgrading the hosting platform software, which hosts this web site.
I currently live in Tokyo, like to travel, cook, run and talk (especially about politics). You can reach me through this contact form.
