Sam Heinrich, 3Waves Japan Market Research
3Waves Japan is a fully independent qualitative market research agency
based in the heart of Tokyo working in partnership with brands and agencies
from across the globe to provide insight into the Japanese market. Our
team of bilingual and bicultural consultants has a wide range of industry
experience including health and beauty, homecare, entertainment, food and
beverages, retail, fashion, and luxury goods.
Landing in Japan for the first time in 1999 Sam knew this place was different and has been researching it in one form or another ever since. With a degree in International Business and Japanese from the Queensland University of Technology, Sam originally found himself working as a trade consultant assisting multinational companies with market entry advice.
Realizing that market entry was only the beginning and quickly the end for many, Sam soon turned his sights to consumer research and has spent the rest of his time either running focus groups, in-home interviews, or accompanied shopping trips trying to understand what makes Japanese consumers tick.
Experienced handling both qualitative and quantitative methodologies Sam has helped many international clients in a range of industries including gaming, mobile phones, luxury goods, FMCG, IT, and travel. When not sitting behind the one-way mirror Sam likes to spend his time outdoors skiing, playing tennis, or enjoying a few of the tasty Japanese beers with friends.
