She brings a wealth of experience, industry knowledge, as well as a passion for innovation. We are confident Florence, alongside our team, will continue to take our clients’ businesses to the next level.”
The appointment comes as the agency faces fresh growth, including the recent win of HSBC’s global media duties. Wong will also work closely with Chung to ensure the agency retains its market-leading position, having been one of only two media agencies from Hong Kong to be listed on the 2018 Gunn Media 100 list.
The appointment is effective immediately.
