Carat China has appointed Sarah Weyman (pictured) as head of corporate development. She will be championing Carat China’s proposition to external and internal audiences across social, PR and events initiatives. She joins from the UK where she was head of new business for three Dentsu Aegis Network agency brands: Carat, Vizeum and iProspect.

Victor Manggunio has taken up creative leadership of Leo Burnett offices across Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou. As the new chief creative officer, his appointment marks a return to Leo Burnett for Manggunio, who previously spent ten years at the network’s Hong Kong office.

Cheil PengTai has promoted Hua Wei to VP to be in charge of the agency's domestic clients in China, and Larry Sun, also as VP, to serve Samsung Electronics and other international accounts.

Liu will drive physical-digital convergence and grow ecommerce initiatives for Hong Kong DisneyLand, DisneyLand Paris, Tokyo Disney Resort and the soon-to-be-open Shanghai Disney Resort. Previously, he was the APAC director of digital business for the company.

Posterscope has announced the promotion of Rebecca Chang to general manager of its Taiwan team. She was vice president prior to this. In her new role, Chang will continue OOH business development responsibilities in Taiwan as well as across the region, and report to Ann Yang, CEO of Dentsu Aegis Network Taiwan.
