Hong Kong, April 1, 2020 – ForwardPMX, an award-winning global brand performance agency, announced that it has named Edison Woo as Head of Paid Media APAC. In this newly formed role, Woo will be focused on elevating ForwardPMX’s local expertise in APAC, helping brands to grow globally while navigating the nuances of individual APAC markets, platforms and diverse consumers – which is needed more than ever given the current COVID-19 health crisis.
ForwardPMX is home to 1,000 experts across 25 offices and 15 countries around the world, managing over $1 billion in media. The agency has significant presence in APAC, with offices in Hong Kong, China, Singapore, South Korea, Japan, and now Bangalore, as a result of the recent acquisition of The Search Agency. In 2019, ForwardPMX APAC saw growth by an impressive 30% in topline revenue, working with world-class global brands including Marina Bay Sands and UberEats. The agency delivers multi-market, multichannel digital solutions that address the crucial opportunities to connect with APAC’s highly influential consumers. Recent work includes driving business growth for iconic hotel, Marina Bay Sands, recognized with an award from the Asia eCommerce Awards.
Edison Woo, Head of Paid Media APAC, said, “I’m thrilled to be back in agency life and to be joining this talented team in APAC. The agency has done an incredible job of supporting and leading its workforce and client base through these challenging times, and I’m proud to be a part of it.”
“We’re delighted to welcome Edison to the business. He’s been a key asset to bring on-board during this turbulent time as brands navigate the COVID-19 pandemic” said Richard Brosgill, Managing Director APAC & RU. “Since December, he’s shown strong and committed leadership as we continue to help clients navigate an increasingly complex and fragmented market. Through Edison’s remit, he will continue to connect our talent across the region to ensure the right teams are present to deliver against the total needs of our clients’ businesses, while also spearheading innovation to deliver the right solutions to our growing client base. Edison’s wealth of experience means he is well-positioned to support our continued growth momentum and constant media innovation through 2020 and beyond.”
Woo added, “ForwardPMX’s philosophy in finding the change that fuels the growth has an inspired way of working to help clients to find the catalyst to transform their businesses. We’ll be set up to plan and execute full-funnel digital marketing strategies throughout the regions, utilizing our relationships with platforms to cater to the specific requirements needed for modern clients’ needs.”
Prior to ForwardPMX, Woo held positions at MediaCom and Zenith before making the transition from Citi.
