Jagwani is the general manager of Mediacom Singapore and has more than 15 years of multi-market experience in strategic marketing and brand and communications management.

She has worked across a range of industries including financial, retail, luxury, travel and non-profit organisations, during stints at Barclays Bank, WPP Group and the World Gold Council.

“We live in a complex landscape of constantly evolving patterns of media consumption and reduced attention spans of consumers,” Jagwani said. “A true measure of performance, the SMA Awards honour compelling work and acknowledges the human spirit.”

Organised by the Association of Accredited Advertising Agents (4As) Singapore and already in its eighth year, the awards honours creativity and innovation in 21 categories.

The SMA 2011 chairman was Leela Nair, managing director at Mindshare Singapore.
