Saatchis Singapore beefs staff strength

After recent departures, Saatchi and Saatchi Singapore has made several hires.

Paul Roebuck (pictured) told Marketing that the agency was currently working on building its regional capabilities.

The new hires are not direct replacements for the departures mentioned earlier, he added.

The agency has appointed Arvid Lithander and Ruchir Sachdev as senior copywriters.

Penny Sadlier joins as senior business director and Savita Iyer as associate planning director to service the Procter & Gamble business.

He added that exact replacements for previous general manager Lionel Goh would not be made, but that the agency was in the midst of restructuring roles, and that Goh’s duties would be covered internally.

He also said that the agency is set to confirm its lead for the Mead Johnson business soon.
