Jean-Paul Burge, SEA president and CEO Singapore at BBDO Proximity, said its digital offering and capabilities continue to grow.

As technical director, Thevenet will be responsible for pushing the boundaries of technology, making sure all programmes work across all devices and giving more flexibility to the process to enhance user experience.

He has worked with clients such as the Ministry of Youth, Culture and Sports, Singapore, Pascal Morabito and the Suria Channel.

Meanwhile, Marino moves from BBH Singapore where she led a project with Google to create Open Spaces for Indonesian artists to use an HTML5 web drawing tool to create art for display around Jakarta.

She previously worked with Mother London, having built digital project management teams while leading the work on Beck's Augmented Reality "Green Box Project" spanning seven cities and 25 international artists. 

Her clients include BBC, L'Oreal, IKEA, Royal Bank of Scotland, Energizer, Santander and Unilever while she was at W+K London, AMV BBDO and VML London.
