Teasdale Worldwide Expands its Business Reach to Asia

Teasdale Worldwide Asia will increase American and Asian business growth.

Tampa, FL, May 02, 2007 --(PR.com)-- Teasdale Worldwide will form a strong bond between Asian and American commerce through the creation of Teasdale Worldwide Asia. The new business venture was announced at the strategic marketing firm’s corporate office in Tampa, Florida, during a VIP reception featuring Consul Zhou Ding of People’s Republic of China, Consul General Hiroshi Yamaguchi of Japan, and Consul Yong Kil Kim of Republic of Korea.

Teasdale Worldwide Asia will spearhead marketing, branding, public relations, events and media planning for Asia-based clients interested in expanding their businesses to the United States. The firm will travel to Asia to investigate challenges and form opportunities for new business development. “We are reaching out to those organizations that want to achieve the next level of expansion and increase business in Asia and the U.S.,” said CEO Malcolm A. Teasdale. “We will assist these companies in understanding the intricacies of cultural differences, benefits, forming international alliances and practices of doing business throughout the world.”

Kimi Springsteen, the Asian-American Liaison for the Hillsborough County Board of Commissioners, will work closely with the newly formed firm to develop strong ties with Asian countries, particularly China, Japan, and Korea. “I feel confident that Teasdale Worldwide Asia will lead the Tampa Bay area to the next level of economic development and on to the top of the international arena,” said Springsteen, who has devoted over four decades to assisting business and governmental sector connections. “Malcolm Teasdale is so unique and innovative, and I am looking forward to working with him to accomplish that goal.”

Teasdale Worldwide Asia is currently in the final stages of securing key clients that will pave the way for the “East meets West” merger.

In October 2007, Teasdale and Springsteen will travel to Tokyo, Seoul and Beijing with a team of other business, cultural, and educational dignitaries, to attend conferences focused on strengthening international business development.

“I have always seen the world as a neighborhood full of opportunities,” said Teasdale, on his vision for this important alliance. “We are breaking down barriers, and educating the world to embrace cultural diversity instead of just tolerate it.”
