Rinkya Founder/Owner

Heather Russell shared her Brooklyn childhood romance for Godzilla with the rest of the world by creating Rinkya. Initially, working out of a postage stamp-size Tokyo apartment, she was able to open the closed doors of Japan commerce to the rest of the world. Today, Rinkya, the number one middleman service for all things Japanese, has grown into an award-winning multi-million dollar international company. As a student of Fashion Industries in New York City and later Arizona State University, Heather relates her entrepreneurial success to the rare occasion of listening to her parents' advice: "never let school interfere with your education". Rinkya rules in Tokyo, London and wherever Heather lives. Coming soon to a country near you....
