Kinetic also announced that Alex Thompson, currently Chief Executive of Asia Pacific, is being appointed to the newly created role of Global Head of Business Development.
Chris O’Donnell told us “This is a great opportunity to export best practice and to share ideas and opportunities from the fastest growing economic region in the world. Our approach is going to be more integrated and our client and agency relationships will benefit from this global view.”
