With Ali leading creativity in Southeast Asia, we are looking to further bolster our creative culture in the region,” Grey Group Asia Pacific chairman & CEO Nirvik Singh said.

“It is truly an honour to be leading the creatives across Southeast Asia. I am excited about the new role and challenges, and look forward to providing creative solutions for our clients across the region.”
