Manhattan-based boutique PR consulting agency, George Root Ltd. has one rule: do things differently. Well-established in both Japanese and American markets, Root bridges the luxury gap in Asia.

In today’s highly saturated luxury landscape, George Root Ltd. sets itself apart with made-to-order, 360-degree strategies—custom consulting for every business. Unlike other agencies, George Root Ltd. believes that multi-platform brand building opportunities are only effective if they take a consumer’s culture into account to provide one strong and clear message. This worldly approach allows Root to move seamlessly within the realms of digital PR strategy, event planning, talent casting and content planning. As the go-to PR leader in Japan, Root is able to apply his strategy to brands of all sizes. Refreshingly organic and relentlessly creative with the data to prove it, George Root Ltd. is redefining what it means to be a luxury leader.

George Root is an international force to be reckoned with. Prior to founding his digital PR agency, Root worked as a highly sought-after freelance publicist and casting director.

Among his former initiatives? The project director of the Paris-born ASVOFF TOKYO film festival and his groundbreaking work for American Apparel. In 2012, Root propelled the Shibuya store to the number one selling American Apparel out of over 250 global locations. In 2016, Root was appointed Nihon L’Oreal Digital Ambassador; the same year he founded his boutique digital PR consulting agency, George Root Ltd.

His unparalleled influence over the Japanese market makes Root one of the few PR consultants able to successfully bridge the gap between Japan and the rest of the world. As the powerhouse creative behind some of the most recognizable global brand activations— ASICSTIGER, Bobbi Brown, FarFetch, Furla, GCDS, Giorgio Armani Beauty, L’Oreal, Shu Uemura, to name a few—Root’s portfolio is as dynamic as he is. In a climate where originality is sparse, Root’s custom, made-to-order PR strategies are a refreshing break from the norm. Because of his voracious travel schedule and unparalleled intuition, Root is always at the forefront of trends, continuously proving his uncanny ability to dominate any industry, worldwide. Moreover, through his partnerships with companies that wish to localize their product abroad, Root has singlehandedly created a niche market for global brands in Japan.


If his career path thus far is any indication, George Root is only just getting started. His latest venture? The release of his highly-anticipated first book in Japan, 42 Tips to Make it Global. Just as the title suggests, Root chronicles his rapid rise to success and sheds light on what it takes to make it in the cutthroat world of global luxury brands. Within its pages, Root positions himself not only as an advisor but also an educator to those attempting to break into international markets. Root describes the industry in a raw voice that is wise beyond his years—a trait that no doubt has catapulted him to where he is today.
