Jonathan Aknin
CEO/Founder de Tohar

Following on from Business studies at ISG Paris I continued to do a master’s in marketing and Business. Throughout my studies I had the opportunity to experience many exchange programs in Asia, mostly in China (Shanghai, Pekin and Hong Kong), Japan (Tokyo) and in the United States (New York). After an internship at the end of my studies, and with my master’s obtained, I decided to stay in this country which fascinated me. The level of pollution led me to become truly conscious of the impact fine particles have on our health and wellbeing. May years later, following on from my return to Paris, I decided to create my own business committed to environmental causes.

Diplômée en quatrième année de design global, à LISAA Paris, en tant que Major de Promotion, j'ai ensuite suivi un Master II de design global, avec une spécialisation en design de services et design connecté dans cette même école. Très concernée par les questions environnementales et férue de nouvelles technologies, mon objectif est de créer de nouvelles opportunités qui feront évoluer notre quotidien, toujours en mettant l’usager et l’usage au cœur de mes réflexions. Chez Tohar, je m’occupe du design produit et de services, de la direction artistique, de l’UI, et du management d’équipe. Tous ces domaines me permettent d’avoir une vision globale de l'entreprise ce qui m’enrichit personnellement au fur à mesure que Tohar évolue.
