MediaCom Hong Kong confirmed the appointment of Jasmine Lee (pictured) as its new deputy general manager, effective 16 June.
Lee is current business director at OMD and reports to MediaCom managing director Alice Chow, who moved to the WPP agency from OMD in March.
Lee’s appointment fills the chair left by Kelly Chan, who moved to PHD Hong Kong as business director .
The deputy GM role is an extension of the business director title, as MediaCom looks to boost its business size.
During her 10 years at OMD, Lee built a strong relationship with clients from Wyeth Nutrition, The Hong Kong Jockey Club and Johnson & Johnson.
“I see Jasmine a perfect fit for MediaCom’s development on broader business ambition, cultivating creativity, and building an energetic culture,” Chow told Marketing.
On her last week at OMD, Lee said: “I believe that over the past 10 years I’ve made considerable achievements in OMD. I had a good time during this period and leaving is a hard decision for me. But it’s about time to look for a new breakthrough in my career.”
“I’ve known Alice for a long time when we’re in OMD. Her sophistication gives me confidence that we can shape a healthy and vigorous business in MediaCom with human touch so as to fit MediaCom’s manifesto of ‘People first, Better results’,” said Lee, who added her shift to MediaCom is based on a positive business prospect.
