MEC chose Wang for the position thanks to her expertise in digital and local industry knowledge, according to MEC Taiwan’s managing director, Kelly Huang.

Huang was promoted from the general manager to head of MEC Taiwan after ex-CEO Vince Cheng became GroupM Taiwan CEO last July.

Wang said she will ensure that all her MEC team members "embrace digitalisation as their number one priority".

During her stint with Yahoo, Wang held several sales positions, the most recent being sales director. Wang told Campaign Asia-Pacific that having to meet Yahoo's sales targets for 15 years has trained her to thrive in a digitally focused environment.

The new role at MEC will give Wang the opportunity to build complete media solutions not only for digitally forward clients like Estee Lauder, but other clients including Citibank, Kao, Colgate, Wrigley, Mercedes Benz, Universal International Pictures and Quaker.
