Andrew Lee, managing director for Havas Worldwide Malaysia, noted that Foo has worked on all its key clients since 2011, when he joined the agency––following the footsteps of Ng, who came on as executive creative director several months earlier.

Foo and Ng have worked together since 2008 when they were with Lowe Kuala Lumpur. Since joining Havas Worldwide in 2011, the duo has been working together on campaigns for Reckitt Benckiser, Carlsberg, AmBank and Dulux.

“We are pushing forward to identify great local talents within our agencies for leadership roles," said Naomi Troni, Southeast Asia CEO at Havas Worldwide. "Ezra fits the bill as a young, dynamic and digitally savvy creative lead for Havas in Malaysia.”
