Man On The Ground
Providing market entry and consultation services for the Asian region for music and entertainment related companies


"I have had the privilege of working closely with Tony on many projects & high-level events in Asia. His deep and extensive base of personal contacts and networks there, as well as his deep market knowledge across Asia-Pacific and Hong Kong, is a strong and important asset that he brings into any business project or professional interaction. His rare ability and many years of experience in the Asia region allow him to combine his unique Western perspective and pan-Asian understanding so that it brings considerable expertise and value to those companies and executives with whom he works. These qualities make him especially valuable to USA, UK and Europe-based companies looking to work in, or enter the Asia and Asia-Pacific markets."

Ralph Simon, Chief Executive Officer, Mobilium Global Limited

"Tony Ward is a classic mix of Western business objective married into Asian business sensibilities with great results. In the past few years that he spent in Asia, Tony has developed and understood Asia's music and media markets well and, most importantly, has built very solid relationships and trust not only amongst the players but also amongst emerging businesses and people who operate them. Tony has patiently understood dynamics of each and every market in Asia. Tony has also been a significant part of building some of Asia's biggest music, digital and media industry gatherings where thought leaders come together"

Mandar Thakur, Chief Operating Officer, Times Music, Mumbai, India
