The agency's clients include Underwriter’s Laboratories, Danfoss, Tyson Foods and CFA.

Koa is a seasoned strategic marketing and communications professional with 20 years of industry experience working in top leadership positions across Greater China for global networks such as Publicis, TBWA and Euro RSCG.

“In Marian, we have appointed a leader with the strategic smarts to help solve our clients’ most complex business problems, the proven experience to manage integrated communications solutions, and most importantly the entrepreneurial spirit and energy to inspire the growing Doremus team in China,” said Howard Sherman, Doremus CEO.

As part of its Asia Pacific growth plan, Koa joins Mitchell Tan, Doremus Managing Director for Greater China and Richard Beccle, Doremus Group Managing Director for Asia Pacific as a new member of the regional senior management team.
