Hunt is the co-founder of Singapore and London-based brand agency HuntHaggarty. The agency’s clients include Google, Dell, Coca Cola, Unilver, Motorola, Nokia, Benefit Cosmetics, Under Armour and Cathay Pacific. Hunt remains co-wner of HuntHaggarty, a spokesperson confirmed adding that  clients would not be moving across to FutureBrand

The announcement comes weeks after Sarah Reiter FutureBrand’s APAC president left the company. Executive director strategy Dan Dimmock replaced Reiter, taking on the role of managing director, Southeast Asia. More recently, Interbrand’s MD for Australia Richard Curtis joined the company as its Australia CEO.  

“The transition to the new Asia Pacific leadership team has been seamless,” said Patrick Smith, CEO FutureBrand Worldwide. “In addition to creating a different kind of regional leadership role that Susie has stepped into, we are lucky to have Dan Dimmock and Karine Uehara, both of whom are also supremely talented and who took on the Managing Director and Creative Director roles respectively in March.” 

Hunt assumes her new role in May. She will oversee business with key clients like UOB, Petronas, Fiji Airways, HostPlus, Bank of Shanghai, Singapore Police Force and Asia Breweries Incorporated.

Her previous roles included senior positions at Enterprise IG and JWT in Sydney.
