Mirum's Ivan Ng leaves agency

Ivan Ng (pictured), director of social and content for Mirum’s The Social Team, has left the company after more than three years in the role.

During his time at Mirum, Ng was responsible for a team which focuses on the creation and execution of social media content, campaigns, analytics and services. He was also in charge of developing social concepts and providing communication solutions in all phases of a program. He has worked on both global and regional brands as well.

During his stint with Mirum, Ng has executed social strategies and created social content for brands such as ASUS, Singapore Tourism Board, Singapore International Foundation, Maggi Mee, Royal Caribbean Cruises, American Tourister, Clarke Quay and Dulux, Intercontinental Hotel, Nikon Essilor Lenswear and many more.

He first joined J. Walter Thompson and Mirum Singapore to launch The Social Team, a social media offering that provides clients access to digital, analytics, content, strategy and creative expertise through one specialised team.

The Social Team was headed by Ng and Kimberley Olsen, associate director, who has also left the agency. Ng, who was appointed head of social, took on a more strategic role, while Olsen focused on business development across the region.

In a statement to Marketing, a JWT spokesperson said, “We thank him for his valuable contribution, having helped build up our agencies’ social competencies, and we wish him the very best for the future.”

Prior to JWT, he was with Vocanic as regional creative director, and also worked at Wunderman as digital art director.
