Publicis Groupe today announced that Ken Lingan has joined the network as Philippines CEO, effective July.

Lingan was previously country manager at Google, where he oversaw the growth of the company’s advertising business across various sectors. His 16-year career in marketing also includes stints at Unilever in Southeast Asia and the Gulf.

“My learnings at Unilever and, more recently, at Google, show that clients want integration as they face the risk of market fragmentation today,” Lingan said. “I am excited to be part of Publicis Groupe Philippines, and I look forward to working with such a dynamic, diverse and talented team.”

Lingan will focus on developing Publicis’ Philippines offering across the network, and will report to Raymond Arrastia, chairman of Publicis Group Philippines. Arrastia praised Lingan’s “solid background and experience”, adding that he is “very confident” Lingan will help the network deliver top solutions for clients.
