Branding agency DesignStudio has named David Storey its new APAC lead.

Storey, the former managing director of Interbrand Sydney, brings a decade of experience in both agency and strategic consulting across multiple sectors, including infrastructure, retail, arts and culture, not-for-profit, finance, broadcast and digital media. He replaces current DesignStudio APAC lead Mark Liney, who returns to the UK to lead the agency's London operations. 

"We're delighted to bring David into the business," said Liney. "There's such a runway ahead for DesignStudio in APAC and David is a brilliant thinker who will help expand our reach with clients and deepen the impact of the work we do. I'm really excited to have the opportunity to work with him."

"We have ambitious plans to grow our presence across APAC and I’m delighted that David has joined us to drive that effort. He’s a strategic thinker whose breadth of experience working across a range of brands and industries make him ideally placed, along with our team in Sydney, to lead the next chapter for us," added Paul Stafford, DesignStudio CEO.
