Global communications agency, Redhill, has appointed Manisha Seewal as its new President.

Seewal first joined Redhill as a Senior Advisor in November of last year, bringing over two decades of senior leadership experience. Redhill said she brings acute industry expertise in terms of marketing, digital transformation and market expansion, inclusing leading various “Singapore’s first” digital transformation projects, such as the country’s first “Netflix for Cars” subscription-based program and first life insurance chatbot. She was also listed amongst World’s Top 100 In-House Communicators and 100 Most Influential Global Marketing Leaders.

“Having worked with Manisha for the past months, I’m happy to welcome her into her new role as President. Especially during our critical growth juncture, I’m confident that she will further strengthen Redhill’s capabilities in the long term,” said Jacob Puthenparambil, Founder and CEO of Redhill.


 

Before joining Redhill,  Seewalwas the Chief Marketing Officer of Gumtree, Carsguide, and Autotrader, where she spearheaded the three brands’ digital transformation of their marketing and editorial functions in Australia. Prior to that, she was the first Group Chief Marketing Officer of Southeast Asian car marketplace Carro – where she scaled the company’s marketing team from just three people to over 70-strong across Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia.

While at Carro, Manisha concurrently served as the Chief Executive Officer of Jualo.com, Indonesia’s third-largest e-classified marketplace that was acquired by Carro. Before joining the startup world, Manisha was heading marketing for several financial institutions like Tokio Marine, HSBC and AVIVA.

The appointment coincides with Redhill’s rapid growth, that has seen the agency enter three new markets recently: Middle East, United Kingdom and United States. Building on its expanding global footprint, the agency launched its creative arm, Redhill Studio, and later merging its existing design and content capabilities with those of VS Story, a Singapore-based award-winning storytelling company that Redhill acquired last year.

“With its 200-person formidable team and a vast global presence, Redhill is the world’s second fastest growing PR agency that is ready for the next stage of growth. It is time we connect our new business acquisitions with a strategic lens to unleash Redhill’s potential as a full-stack communications agency. I’m delighted to be a part of this journey, and I look forward to what comes next for the agency’s continued success,” said Seewal.


 

Further accelerating its growth, Redhill also recently entered strategic partnerships with Sri Lanka- based PR Wire and Singapore-based Aroca Consulting Group (ACG) to boost its market presence and competencies in Sri Lanka, as well as its general service offerings in government relations and public affairs.
