Asia Pacific Digital, whose APD subsidiary is active across the Asia Pacific region, made new appointments on its board, bringing on Laura Ashton and Mark Dalgleish. Meanwhile, David Sweet, a longstanding non-executive director will retire.
Ashton (pictured) is the Singapore-based head of APAC and global relationship marketing at A.T. Kearney, a global management consulting firm with offices in more than 40 countries. Throughout her 30-year career, which includes 18 years in Asia, Ashton has held marketing and leadership roles at national, regional and global levels in diverse industries including consumer packaged goods, advertising, downstream energy, consumer durables, electronics and professional services.
Dalgleish is a Sydney-based digital marketing entrepreneur with more than 25 years’ experience in marketing and communications. Dalgleish has previously built and sold two market-leading digital businesses in the UK and Australia, which were subsequently acquired by international advertising and marketing groups Interpublic and Enero.
“Ashton and Dalgleish have significant international experience as both clients and suppliers of marketing and technology services. The combination of Laura’s client-side leadership across diverse industry sectors, and Mark’s success in building and selling digital businesses, will greatly enhance the APD Board,” Roger Sharp, Asia Pacific Digital chairman said.
