Ha will also assume APAC leadership of Lenovo, the agency’s largest account within the region.

According to a press statement from Text 100, Ha's promotion is in recognition of his "impressive growth of the Singapore team and business as well as his desire to engage more in regional client consulting campaigns."

Former Asean director Anne Costello will focus on Text 100’s new business and marketing activities across the region.

Jeremy Seow joins Text 100 Singapore from Yahoo where he was most recently communications manager, Southeast Asia. As senior account manager, Seow will lead several of the agency's key accounts based in Singapore.

Marie Ong also joins the Singapore team as a senior account manager. With more than eight years experience, she most recently worked in the Singapore prime minister’s office handling external communications and social media programmes.

In Text 100 Malaysia, David Lian has also been promoted to social media strategist, Asean. Under the direction of Hong Kong-based Jeremy Woolf, Text 100’s global social media lead, David will focus on developing social media and digital strategies as well as programmes for new and existing clients across the region.

To support this promotion, a new account director will be joining Text 100's Kuala Lumpur team, as well as two further junior hires taking the headcount in the office to 18 consultants.

A press statement claims that new management changes in Singapore and Malaysia reflect the agency’s continued success and growth across Asia as well as its leadership position in social media programmes.

Rowan Benecke, regional consultancy director of Text 100 APAC, said: “Despite wrenching recent changes in our industry, we continue to invest in our people and their careers. These announcements underscore our ongoing commitment to building a strong people culture with a clear focus on talent development and career progression within the agency.”
