Digital talent and influencer company Gushcloud International has named well known content creator and founder of Night Owl Cinematics, Sylvia Chan as the regional head of content and IP (intellectual properties) in Asia. Chan will develop the full portfolio of media channels and content properties across Southeast Asia and will work closely with Gushcloud’s Southeast Asia offices across Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam to improve and introduce new content. As co-founder of a Singaporean media company, Chan has 10 years of experience with a proven track record in content development, content marketing, and brand partnerships.
“Gushcloud is a homegrown company that is a well-established leader in the creator economy and has developed itself successfully into a global company. I am extremely excited to work alongside the management team in creating projects and content that the world will love and to be able to scale all these content pieces globally,” said Chan.
To lead its commerce operations, the company has also appointed Diana Koh to work alongside the management team to design and implement strategies to help grow and scale the company, particularly expanding the company’s core interest in live commerce. Koh brings 30 years of experience in administration, with 16 years in operations management, warehousing, retail, eCommerce, global logistics, supply chain and shipping. Prior to working with Gushcloud, Koh was senior vice president of operations at Singapore-based fashion eCommerce firm Zilingo where she oversaw B2C and B2B regional logistics operations for Asia, Australia and the US.
“As a team, we see a lot of potential in cross-border live commerce where we can leverage the supply chain power that Gushcloud already has in her 11 offices globally and to connect the supply chain with key influencers that have the ability to drive sales in live commerce,” said Koh. “I am personally excited to join the team and to be able to use my experience to lead Gushcloud to realize its full potential by strengthening its business operations within the commerce unit”.
Althea Lim, co-founder and group CEO of Gushcloud International said, “I am personally excited to welcome Chan and Koh to the Gushcloud team. Both of them have had impressive track records and deep experiences in the commerce and entertainment industries that we at Gushcloud can learn and benefit from."
Lim also added that as content and commerce intersect and overlap more and more, Gushcloud will be recruiting more professionals with deep expertise to build out its global ambition of being a "creator+content+commerce company".
"As a team, we are confident that having Chan and Koh of their leadership caliber and astute vision will bring nothing but further success to Gushcloud and our mission," she said.
