DDB Group Singapore has promoted Neel Chhaya to Managing Partner. He will be supporting Jeff Cheong, who was tapped as CEO of DDB Group Singapore in January.
Over the past six years, Chhaya has steered key business partnerships at the Singapore office, including Exxon, MAS, GIC, National Environment Agency, Samsonite, and Unilever.
He brings a 15-year track record in business management globally, having worked with brands in the world, including Credit Suisse, Standard Chartered, Chevrolet, Nissan, Coca-Cola, Kimberly Clark and Intel. Before joining DDB, Neel spent time at McCann Worldgroup, The Bonsey Design Partnership, and OgilvyOneWorldwide.
“Neel is a homegrown talent with exceptional business acumen,” said Cheong.
“Following several new business wins, it’s easy to see his undeniable impact at the agency. Together with Group Managing Director Joshua Lee and Group Chief Operating Officer Leslie Goh, I expect to see our growth agenda strengthen with more unexpected work.”
“I look forward to harnessing our talent, entrepreneurial spirit, tech expertise, and track record as one of the top agencies in Singapore to deliver world-class creative work for our thriving roster of clients,” added Chhaya.
