Kitty Lun, chairman and CEO of Lowe China, commented that Tan is both a friend and a colleague and has had a great impact on the quality of Lowe's creative product and agency culture. "He leaves behind a creative department that is one of the finest in China," she said. "I will announce his successor in due course.”
