RoadShow Media Group promoted Lawrence Chan Kwan from chief financial officer to chief executive officer with effect from 1 April. He joined RoadShow in September 2014, following roles at Deloitte, JCDecaux and Balmain Asia.

Artefact officially appointed Xavier Mussard as senior director of data and consulting for APAC after he spent a few months working at the Artefact Paris and Dubai offices since last November. He has 12 years in the retail, telco and hospitality industries, and joined from Oliver Wyman, where he was principal of strategy and management consulting.

Publicis Communications appointed Fanny Yum as managing partner of Publicis Communications Shanghai, a newly-created role responsible for "bolstering the strategic alliance and business development among Publicis Communications agencies in Shanghai" and reinforcing the Power of One strategy. She will also take on the CEO role of Publicis Worldwide Shanghai, as well as lead the operations of Publicis Life Brands. The incumbent CEO of Publicis Worldwide Shanghai, Chenghua Yang, plans to leave the agency for "other personal endeavours". Yum will report to Michael Lee, CEO of Publicis Groupe Greater China. Yum was most recently chief growth officer of Charoen Pokphand Group's Zheng Yuan China, which followed a stint as CEO of MullenLowe China (and a spot in Campaign's 2012 Women to Watch). She has also worked at McCann Erickson Hong Kong, BBDO Shanghai and DFCB Beijing.

Youth media company Vice announced a major content series with China’s Tencent Video exploring ‘hype culture’ in a generation obsessed with finding the next big thing. The eight-part series of 25 minute episodes will be produced by Vice Studios earmarked for a late 2019 release through Tencent Video.

GolinOpinion, the PR agency of the MullenLowe Lintas Group, has been awarded the PR mandate for Charmboard, an in-video discovery platform after a multi-agency pitch and will be handled by the agency’s Bangalore office.

Omnicom Media Group Singapore appointed Anita Yeong as commercial director and promoted Jourdan Tan to head of performance. Yeong’s new role effectively replaces the investment role previously held by Rochelle Chhaya, who recently became APAC COO for OMD, while Tan's position is newly created. Yeong returns to OMG after five years at IPG Mediabrands, where she headed up Magna Global. She will lead the investment, trading and accountability functions for the group and be tasked with delivering data-backed investment strategies across both offline and online media. Tan was previously performance director for the group in Singapore and head of programmatic for OMD New Zealand. He will ensure clients’ digital strategies encompass performance elements across search, paid social, e-commerce and programmatic, according to the company.

JCDecaux Singapore announced it is the exclusive advertising concessionaire for Jewel Changi
Airport
, a shopping destinatio that opened earlier this month. The digital advertising network comprises 19 digital placements that are enabled for dynamic content utilising live feeds like time, weather and social media.

Carousell picked 72andSunny as its creative agency in Singapore. Following a competitive, 72andSunny will oversee creative strategy and seek to grow Carousell's presence in Southeast Asia. The win comes off the back of 72andSunny also securing new clients Love, Bonito and HipVan

Publicis Groupe Malaysia appointed Maureen Gomez as chief talent officer. She was previously Publicis One chief talent officer from 2016, and before that worked as head of people and culture at Leo Burnett. Gomez will oversee the group's entire HR function.
