Mok told Campaign Asia-Pacific this morning that his departure is amicable. “I am very happy at Grey Group, but it is for personal career change and I want to look for new excitement and challenge,” he said. 

Mok refused to reveal the the name of the "big client" that he is going to join, saying only that the company will have an official announcement next week.

Mok has spent two decades in 4A agencies including BBDO and D'Arcy Masius Benton & Bowles (now Publicis). He is also vice-chairman of the HK4As.

TH Peng, chairman and CEO of Grey Group Greater China told Campaign Asia-Pacific that, “Danny is leaving us in good terms, and is moving to the client side, which is a fantastic job and pretty promising for him.”

Peng, who will continue to look after the Hong Kong operations, added that the Hong Kong office has a solid foundation, with Desmond Chan as GM and Keith Ho as ECD. "I am looking forward to Mok’s replacement, though there's no hurry, but I prefer to find the right and strong candidate instead," Peng said.

Reported on 4 May, Pratik Thakar, most recently vice-president and chief strategy and innovation officer for Grey Group Greater China, has taken up a new Asia-Pacific role as head of Pacific Group creative and content excellence at Coca-Cola.
