Havas Worldwide KL has named Ezra Foo as the new head of creative, replacing Ng Heok Seong, starting January 2014.
Andrew Lee, managing director for Havas Worldwide KL, said that having the ability to promote someone like Ezra internally is a dream.
“He has worked on all of our key clients since 2011 as a creative director and knows them well. Everyone will benefit from Ezra’s move into this leadership role at the agency.”
Lee further tells A+M that having the advantage of Foo’s young age and strength in digital, the agency will look more into new and social media in the near future.
Foo and Seong have worked together since 2008 on campaigns for Rekitt Benckiser, Carlsberg, AmBank and Dulux, among others. There is currently no replacement for Foo’s position.
