TBWA Asia has appointed Perry Essig as chief creative experience officer. In this newly created role, Essig will work with the agency's creative leadership across Asia, and Ben Williams, TBWA Worldwide’s chief creative experience officer, who was appointed to the role in October 2021.

Essig will focus on exploring new approaches which add value and impact to the firm's business. This marks a return for Essig to TBWA, moving to Singapore from New York, where he worked at Dentsu International.

Essig contended that the creative canvas for brands has widened, unlocking new opportunities to engage with consumers. "With the lines blurring between digital and real life, brands have evolved in how and where they’re showing up," Essig said on his new role.  He looks forward to working with TBWA's creative team to create "needle-moving experiences" for clients.
