WPP AUNZ has announced Landor’s president for Southeast Asia Pacific and Japan Nick Foley is leaving Singapore to return to Australia effective immediately.
Whilst his remit will remain the same, he will now be based in WPP AUNZ’s headquarters at Kent Street with the Landor Sydney team.
On his impending return to Australia, Foley said: “It has been a privilege to work with the team in Singapore and be recognised as one of the most progressive agencies in the region.
“During my time in Southeast Asia, Landor broadened its offer and grown its client base accordingly.
“I am now excited to be returning to Australia where we have made some recent changes in conjunction with WPP AUNZ to move the business forward into its next phase of growth”.
He continued: “The most exciting recent change is Cornwell in Melbourne is now part of the Landor group and we see significant upside in 2019 as we start to work more closely with our team there.
“Jessica Murphy has been promoted to the role of General Manager Cornwell and I’m looking forward to spending more time working with Jess, the Cornwell and Landor teams and all our clients across Australia”.
Foley commenced working with Landor in 2008 and was promoted later that year to run the Sydney office.
In 2012, he moved his family to Singapore to build Landor’s offer across the Asia Pacific.
In Singapore, Evonne Chung, has been elevated to the role of managing director.
Foley said: “I am delighted that Evonne Chung has been promoted to the role of managing director, Singapore, and will take on responsibility for growing what is one of Landor’s most strategic hubs within the network”.
Landor and Cornwell are part of WPP AUNZ, Australasia’s leading creative transformation group.
