gyro bolsters APAC team with two senior promotions

gyro has promoted Paul Hutt (pictured left) to chief growth officer of gyro APAC, and Laura Bell (pictured right) to client services director of gyro APAC. The promotions come as the brand aims to expand in the B2B space across APAC.

Marketing has reached out to gyro for additional details.

In his new role, Hutt will be focusing on efforts to grow the business, by pushing gyro's unique proposition. Prior to his promotion, he was the head of media and client services for two years at gyro APAC.

Hutt also took on the role of clients services director at Carat Enterprise APAC, which merged with Band and gyro Singapore to create gyro APAC. Throughout his career, Hutt has worked across services including media, channel, creative and digital capabilities for clients such as Microsoft, Intel and Standard Chartered.

Meanwhile, Bell moved to Singapore from London five years ago to join Band, prior to the rebrand. In her previous stints, she worked with multiple top global clients such as Intel and Mastercard.

According to Kieran Vye, managing director of gyro APAC, Hutt has "proved his time" as client service director that he is able to work across the full scope of services the brand provides to its clients as a fully integrated B2B business.

Vye added that Bell has proven that she has a "powerful ability" to team with clients to help them reach all of their goals while at the same time strengthening the relationship.

"Her positive attitude in the face of challenges is a valuable asset to have in the team as she continues to find emotionally relevant solutions for our clients,” Vye said.

The news comes shortly after gyro APAC made two promotions and two new hires in February this year, in a bid to rapidly expand its Singapore office.
