Wunderman Thompson has announced that Maggie Wong will be joining the Hong Kong agency as the CEO.
Wong joins Wunderman Thompson from Publicis Worldwide & Leo Burnett, where she led the agency to significant growth as Managing Director of the Hong Kong operation. In her time there, Wong created a multi-disciplinary team, landed high-profile new business wins, and kick-started data-led initiatives for global and local clients.
With over 17 years of experience, Wong has worked with established international brands across various industries including Expedia, Lexus, Pizza Hut, HKT and Standard Chartered.
“Wunderman Thompson HK has established an excellent base with a diverse blend of talents and capabilities to turbocharge the next chapter of growth. I’m hugely excited to be joining the wonderful team and by the prospect of what we can achieve together,” said Wong.
Wong will take up the role in late October.
“We’re very excited to see Maggie join us and bring her own brand of leadership and experience to the network. A talented and ambitious leader, Maggie has the right focus on creativity, data, and experience to continue growing the Hong Kong office,” said Ewen Sturgeon, Wunderman Thompson International CEO.
The news comes after former Managing Director Matthew Parry made the move to Australia joining Wunderman Thompson Sydney as Managing Director.
“Matt leaves to Maggie a strong and successful agency, with a great team and clients. And I’m thrilled that Matt continues to grow his career in the Wunderman Thompson network,” Sturgeon concluded.
