Y&R has announced a trio of senior appointments in Asia which include Andrea Conyard as Southeast Asia CEO & Chief Growth Officer tasked with driving growth in the region while leading operations across Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, and Vietnam.
Conyard brings more than two decades of experience working with some of the region’s largest brands, most recently as CEO for Havas Singapore.
He is joined by Damien Tew who comes to Y&R as Managing Director, Greater Bay Area, China, to oversee Y&R’s business growth and operations across the GBA, the world’s next Silicon Valley.
A digital specialist, Tew joins after spending five years at Global Digital Agency, Digitas, most recently as Managing Director, where he was responsible for building the China business network from its social media specialism to a full-service digital marketing agency.
In addition, Y&R is promoting Beverly Ho to Head of Regional Accounts & Business Development. Ho has been with Y&R for more than a decade and in her new role, will be the lead for Y&R’s regional client-base, overseeing regional accounts and driving new business across the network.
The trio will report directly to Asia President Chris Foster.
“The winning packages of the future no longer fit in the rigid and fragile containers of the past, said Foster.
“Now is the time for radical optimism inspired and fuelled by the exciting interface between human insight & technology, which when harnessed properly, will drive the heart of business to new heights.”
Y&R has 189 offices in 93 countries globally.
