“Wunderman’s expertise lies at the collision of data and creativity,” said Desai. “The expansion of our Southeast Asian team is but the latest step in our move to fortify these pillars and take our creative thinking to the next level.”
“We’re full of talented creatives here, and our clients are increasingly excited to get involved in bold, thought-provoking campaigns,” said Tan. “I aim to set the stage for more inspiring yet strategically-driven work and streamline the sharing of resources across our network.”
Tan has served as executive creative director for Wunderman Singapore and Comwerks since 2013. Under his creative leadership, Wunderman has bagged a diverse range of clients including adidas, SAFRA, Starbucks, Microsoft, Shell, P&G, iDA Singapore and more.
