Twyford joins Landor from Fitch India, where he was client director of the company’s Delhi office and was part of the management team.
Landor announced the launch of its Kuala Lumpur office in July last year as part of a move to expand across the region. "Having a full-time person in Malaysia is a result of clients requesting on ground presence by Landor so we can maintain relationships longer to grow our partner brands," said Simon Bell, Landor’s executive director strategy, SEA and Pacific.
Landor’s clients in Malaysia include the Lion Group, UEM Sunrise, Malaysia Airlines and Destinations Resorts and Hotels.
Twyford’s past experience includes extensive work with Nestlé India, where he played a pivotal role in extending the relationship from a single project to maintaining each of the company's business divisions. He was responsible for managing strategic direction and retail and packaging projects across categories and brands.
