Chris Frost

Chris started his career at a digital agency in the UK in early 2000. From there, he moved into recruitment within the marketing and design space, before founding Cogs in 2004. 

Over 20 years Chris has set up and operated companies around the world, and the combined businesses have delivered searches in 16 countries, placing over 5,000 individuals in permanent positions and facilitating over 25,000 freelance and interim projects in the digital sector. 

Based in Japan since 2018, Chris opened and established an office and team here who are now approaching 100 placements within design, product management, digital marketing, and ecommerce. Their focus has been helping foreign companies operating in Japan to attract bi-lingual talent. 

As a CEO running a business through good and bad markets, Chris has seen first-hand the challenges of building culture and leadership skills and adjusting strategy and focus. Chris’s passions are around start-ups, fast growth businesses and progressive business cultures.
