The Futures Company expands to Shanghai

The Futures Company has expanded to Shanghai, a move that follows its launch in Singapore office in 2013.

Kunal Sinha (pictured), Ogilvy & Mather’s former chief knowledge officer for China and cultural insights director for Asia Pacific, will lead The Futures Company in China.

Sinha will also take up the role of chairman, Asia Pacific, working closely with Singapore-based Stephane Alpern, managing director for Asia Pacific, as they develop the business in the region.

Will Galgey, global CEO of The Futures Company, said the company has been working with clients in China for a number of years.

"We’ll now be able to better support those clients and develop new client relationships through Kunal and the outstanding team he has assembled.”

Sinha added that the timing for the launch was "absolutely right".

"Growth has slowed, competition has intensified, there is greater scrutiny of corporations from people and the government alike, and power has shifted to the consumer," he said.
