Angeli Beltran, who co-led Dentsu Mobius with James Hawkins as managing director, has left the agency for a role at JobsDB.
She starts in her new role as managing director of JobsDB, Singapore and Malaysia in November this year.
Hawkins (pictured) told Marketing that he will continue as the sole managing director of the agency, saying that more senior level hires would follow in the coming month.
Beltran resigns after seven years with the Dentsu Asia Network.
“Working on the other side of the business is something that has always been in my plans. A wonderful opportunity presented itself so I’ve decided to take it,” said Beltran.
“We’re all obviously respectful of Angeli’s decision to pursue her dream and explore working client-side,” said Hawkins, adding that the agency has still been winning new clients and will be making key hires in the coming weeks to strengthen its market position.
Prior to joining Dentsu Network, Beltran worked in OgilvyOne and was a partner in Indio Communications as well.
