With almost a decade at McCann Worldgroup, Handel comes into the role having previously been CEO of McCann Worldgroup, and before that managing director of MRM McCann Singapore. He joined from Leo Burnett, where he was APAC regional director of digital.

In a statement, Handel said he aims to make MRM McCann the leading customer relationship agency in the region, as part of a renewed focus on APAC. The agency currently has clients including Cisco, General Motors, Mastercard, Unilever Food Solutions and Honeywell. Handel added that APAC digital spend is projected to grow 17% this year.
