GroupM’s data-driven media agency, Essence, has appointed Magda Wolder as Head of Experience, APAC. She will head up the agency’s creative, content innovation and studio capabilities in the region from the group’s Singapore office.
Wolder will lead a team of creative strategists, conceptual thinkers, design experts and technology-powered production partners to create data-driven creative innovation for the agency’s regional clients.
“Our work at Essence demonstrates that data and technology complement a creative idea, and are not the idea itself. Technology and data are merely the tools for our curious and creative minds to help connect brands with people,” said Wolder.
“In addition to my focus to drive personalisation at scale for our clients in APAC, I am keen to help nurture emerging creative talent and imagination in this region. We have a very talented creative team on the ground here and I cannot wait to see what we will achieve together in 2021.”
Wolder, who joined the agency in 2018, was previously Head of Creative Strategy, EMEA at the agency’s London office. She has more than a decade of industry experience and earlier worked as a senior researcher for EMEA at Netflix in the Netherlands, as well as a lead creative strategist and head of customer closeness at Sky in the United Kingdom.
“We are delighted to have Magda join our APAC team,” said Monica Bhatia, Senior Vice President, Client Partner, APAC and Managing Director, Singapore at Essence.
“With her impressive brand experience, as well as her deep understanding of Essence’s unified approach to data that brings creative and media closer together, we are looking forward to the creative innovation she will bring to media channels and content programmes for our clients in this region.”
