Jamie Tan has been promoted to head of operations.

“FCB is a challenger agency. Every headcount in our organisation is important to us as we’re deliberately lean by design. We move fast and work harder. Whilst not everyone is able to keep pace with our ambition, it does makes it easy to spot the truly talented and the truly dedicated. Aziz, Badron and Tan are the backbone of our agency. When Shi-Ping and I bought over the FCB Group last year, they believed in our vision and poured their heart and soul into the business. It’s time we repaid that faith by ensuring their place as the future leaders of our agency working alongside fast rising talents such as Chock and Chhabra,” said Shaun Tay, co-owner & chief executive officer of the FCB Group Malaysia.
