In a statement to Marketing confirming the move, Joanne Theseira, MD, Publicis Singapore, said that until a replacement is announced, the social business will be led by Sharim Gubbels, creative director, social.
“Singh has been with the agency for the last three years and he has made a huge contribution to our agency culture and business. We wish him the very best of luck in his next chapter, where he will be pursuing opportunities outside advertising,” Theseira added.
During his tenure, Singh was also in charge of operations, delivery, client relationship management, hiring and staffing, business development and overall financial health.
