Asia Pacific Digital Limited (APD), a digital services company, has announced new members of its Board, Laura Ashton and Mark Dalgleish, and the retirement of David Sweet, a longstanding non-executive director.
These appointments bring both client and service provider experience to the table.
Laura Ashton is the Singapore-based head of Asia Pacific and global relationship marketing at A.T. Kearney, a leading global management consulting firm with offices in more than 40 countries.
Throughout her 30-year career, which includes 18 years in Asia, Ashton has held marketing and leadership roles at national, regional and global levels in diverse industries including consumer packaged goods, advertising, downstream energy, consumer durables, electronics and professional services.
Mark Dalgleish is a Sydney-based digital marketing entrepreneur with more than 25 years’ experience in marketing and communications. Dalgleish has previously built and sold two market-leading digital businesses in the UK and Australia, which were subsequently acquired by international advertising and marketing groups Interpublic and Enero.
“Laura and Mark have significant international experience as both clients and suppliers of marketing and technology services. The combination of Laura’s client-side leadership across diverse industry sectors, and Mark’s success in building and selling digital businesses, will greatly enhance the APD Board,” said Roger Sharp, Asia Pacific digital chairman.
“At the same time we thank David Sweet for his many years of service during the company’s transition from its previous telecoms-focused business model to becoming a leader in digital services across the region.”
