The Leading Edge CEO Andy Bateman said, “Tim brings with him a wealth of experience in both his native Australia as well as many of the fast growing economies and cultures across Asia-Pacific that are so crucial to many of our client’s growth ambitions.

During his 12 years at Futurebrand, Riches worked on key clients including Yellow Pages, Unilever Ice-cream, Tourism Australia and Australia's bid for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

"As well as being an experienced operator and business leader, Tim is also an energetic, fresh and challenging thinker – so he fits right in with our refreshed leadership team here,” added Bateman.

Riches is also a judge at this year's Asian Marketing Effectiveness Festival kicking off tomorrow in Shanghai.
