Publicis Groupe Southeast Asia has appointed Sujith Rao as Managing Director of Publicis Commerce to accelerate the Groupe’s commerce offering in the region.
Prior to joining Publicis Commerce, Rao held roles at Travelguru.com, Cbazarr.com, and IPG Mediabrands, and was most recently the Managing Director at Reprise Digital.
Based in Kuala Lumpur, Rao will work with Publicis Groupe’s network of agencies and practice areas across the region. He will orchestrate a deeper connection between the Groupe’s commerce strategy and solutions with our creative, media, performance, and production capabilities, the Groupe said.
“We are delighted to have Sujith captain and grow our highly ambitious Publicis Commerce journey,” said Ian Loon, who recently expanded his duties as Chief Transformation Officer for Publicis Groupe, Southeast Asia.
“His credentials as a solutions architect, problem solver, and people connector will enable the Groupe’s ongoing transformation agenda while delivering innovative commerce solutions that marry brand building and conversion for our clients across the region.”
“I am excited and honoured by the opportunity to work across multiple markets, brands, and capabilities, driving the evolution of Publicis Groupe’s commerce offering in Southeast Asia. Our global investments, locally relevant solutions, and the Groupe’s Power of One ethos are the perfect framework for crafting bespoke digital commerce innovations, and I am ready to get started on this journey with our clients,” said Rao.
