On his new appointment, McNamara said, “The opportunity to join the team at MullenLowe Vietnam was a no brainer. It’s an exciting time to be in Vietnam; the market dynamics are ripe with opportunity to create work that challenges the norm.

Michel Borelli, Managing Director, MullenLowe Vietnam stated, “Adrian’s arrival coincides with a new phase of development for our agency. As clients are increasingly looking for agencies to deliver integrated work, we have been reinventing our agency model, aggressively extending our digital capabilities, updating our offering with branded content, design, as well as other practices like experiential. We needed creative excellence on all fronts, and Adrian’s remarkably broad skill set make him the ideal person to get us there. We couldn’t be more pleased to welcome Adrian to the MullenLowe family.”
