    TotallyAwesome Names Jean-Michel Wu Head of Talent

    Jean-Michel Wu has been appointed Head of Talent at TotallyAwesome where he will work with CEO, Will Anstee, and a growing regional management team.

    TotallyAwesome provides a forum for kids, teens, and families to interact with brands across thousands of apps, games, and websites. The business has more than 300 million monthly active users across APAC.

    Wu has 25 years of experience working across executive recruitment and human resources and is the former APAC CEO of global executive search firm Grace Blue Partnership. He has also held senior roles at McCann, WPP and Ogilvy.

    “We have ambitious plans for expansion in APAC and hiring the right regional and national leadership is a critical aspect of our progress,” said Anstee. “Jean-Michel brings very rare experience, knowledge, and connections across the region and I am very pleased he is available to help us.”

    Wu is the third senior management executive joining TotallyAwesome in the past three weeks. In late March James Sawyer was announced as managing director of Australia/New Zealand and last week Mikio Kudo joined as country manager of Japan.

    “Having worked for large holding groups, the opportunity to assist TotallyAwesome is very attractive because of the unusual nature of the business,” said Wu.

    “As a father of young children, I am naturally concerned about the nature of engagement our kids will have on the internet. TotallyAwesome is dedicated to responsible and appropriate interaction between kids, their families, and brands, so I am excited to be helping Will and the whole team with building a high-performance culture centered around a real purpose.”
