As Clarity’s Managing Director, Mariko Takahashi is responsible for overseeing all business operations in the New York office. She also coordinates the entire Clarity team to ensure our bureaus are streamlined. As Clarity’s main point of contact between clients and trainers, Mariko brings with her an unmatched eye for anticipating each individual or company’s needs. Prior to a training session, Mariko gathers vital information through client outreach, and uses that research to create a program tailored to the specific needs of each and every client.
In addition to her work in client relations, Mariko participates in training sessions, providing detailed assessment of message development, interviewing skills, and on-camera presence.
Originally from London, Ontario, Mariko joined Clarity in 2012 after graduating from Boston University with a Bachelor of Science in Broadcast Journalism and concentration in English Literature. Mariko attended BU on a full athletic scholarship, where she was a member of the Track and Field team. While at BU, Mariko focused on documentary film work, photojournalism, and television broadcasting – invaluable experience for providing our clients with insight and guidance.
Mariko is a talented photographer and artist, whose works appear in our office, in our marketing materials, and on our social media platforms. When Mariko is not at our office in the Flatiron District, she can be found at the beach on Fire Island.
