Welcome New Board Member: Raena Murakami

raena-murakamiWe’re pleased to welcome Raena Murakami as FEW’s newest board member, starting on January 1st. She will take on the Public Relations & Communications Co-Director role from Petra Canan Trudell, who is moving back home to the U.S. after serving for 1 1/2 years on the FEW Board. We’d like to thank Petra for her amazing work with FEW and wish her the best on this new chapter in her life.

Raena joined FEW in 2016, soon after moving to Tokyo from her native New York. She is a strategic and corporate communications consultant, specializing in reputation management and thought leadership for major global companies. Raena has always had a passion for strengthening cross-cultural ties, having grown up in a bilingual and bicultural family, and having lived in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. She is excited to learn, share, and connect with the inspiring members of the FEW community. Alongside learning Japanese, Raena looks forward to helping share the FEW mission of fostering a network to achieve professional and personal growth.
