While it is sad to see Anna go, we wish her all the best in her future endeavours. In the interim, I will be overseeing PHD China and together with the team, I am confident that we will continue to accelerate growth for the agency and help our clients build their business through the innovative use of media communications as well as market-leading media buying solutions.
