Google Singapore appoints new country director to replace Joanna Flint

Google Singapore has appointed Stephanie Davis as its country director, effective on 14 August 2017. She replaces Joanna Flint, who departed the role to lead Google's APAC Agency and Zoo teams, responsible for its strategic partnerships with media and creative agencies.

Prior to the appointment, Davis (pictured) was the country director of Google New Zealand, a role she held since 2016. She has also been with Google for more than 10 years.

According to her LinkedIn, her remit in Google has seen her working in markets such as California in the USA, Dublin in Ireland and most recently, New Zealand. This saw her taking on roles in fields such as travel industry sales, UKI Online Advertising for finance, travel, retail and technology, to name a few.

Meanwhile, Flint held the country manager for Singapore since 2013, a role she took over from Loren Shuster. During her tenure, she oversaw the development of Google’s sales and business development operations in the country.

Prior to her role, she was head of consumer packaged goods, global accounts for Asia Pacific. She developed business strategy and partnerships for Google’s largest brand advertisers across the region including P&G, L’Oreal and J&J.

“I am really excited to take on this new opportunity to lead the team in Singapore, building on the great work that Joanna has achieved in the last few years. I look forward to taking the team onwards and helping our partners in Singapore succeed. Having been in Google for more than 10 years in the US and New Zealand, I hope my experience will bring new perspectives to the stellar team in Singapore," Davis said.
