Smyllie promoted to Aegis regional team

Aegis Media has promoted James Smyllie to regional business director, shifting him from his base in Hong Kong to Singapore.

Smyllie, previously with Carat Hong Kong, will work closely with Sean O'Brien, chief client officer Aegis Media Asia Pacific, to work across Aegis Media's portfolio of key international clients.

His new role is expected to be the first of many changes to the agency's regional management team under O'Brien's direction.

"Having worked at Carat for over four happy and successful years, it was time for a change. I was delighted when asked to join the growing Aegis Media APAC regional team," Smyllie said.

"We have a dynamic new management team here which has the right strategy for growth in the region, and I am very excited to be part of it."
