Isobar shifts Ryan to Singapore

Isobar is moving its Hong Kong CEO Chris Ryan to Singapore to take on a new position as executive director of international clients.

Ryan (pictured left) has held key roles since shifting to Hong Kong in 2008, including CEO of Aegis Media Hong Kong and international client director for Isobar Asia Pacific.

David Jessop (pictured right), who has spent the past two years as business director for the agency, will take over the role as managing director of Isobar Hong Kong.

In Singapore, Ryan will focus on international client development across the region and strengthening Isobar's regional client service hub following the acquisition of TUS Isobar early last year.

He will continue to report to Jean Lin, CEO of Isobar APAC and global chief strategy officer.

"Isobar Hong Kong has gone from strength to strength over the past few years, with no small part played by David, Ryan said via a statement.

He has a great business mind, and is the ideal person to lead the agency in its next chapter of growth and success.

Jessop joined Isobar from JWT two years ago, where he was digital lead and head of XM Hong Kong. He has over 16 years of marketing experience, 14 of which have been digitally focused.
