Keeping pace with... R/GA's Tuomas Peltoniemi

WATCH: Switching agencies, what the industry gets wrong about gen Z and fun facts about Finland. We put the questions everyone wants answered to R/GA's APAC lead.

Originally from Finland, Tuomas Peltoniemi has spent the last eight years becoming one of Asia-Pacific's most visible agency execs. At the beginning of 2019, he switched from his long-time role at TBWA to lead R/GA as EVP, managing director of APAC.

Peltoniemi took to stage at Spikes Asia to dispel myths about gen Z, and discuss how best to market to the highly sought-after audience group.

Campaign caught him after his session to quiz him on the selfie generation...and ask a whole lot of other questions on internet trends, what app he couldn't live without, and the worst advice he ever received. Stick through to the end to see what three words Peltoniemi uses to describe himself.

This video is part of a series, check out our quick-fire interviews with Google's Tara Mckenty and Brave Bison's Kate Burns.
