Global digital agency, Valtech has promoted its Singapore and China managing director, Henri Petitet (pictured), to the newly created role of regional director for Asia Pacific. Petitet will be reporting to Olivier Padiou, group global COO, based in New York. This move signals the agency’s commitment to growth and expansion in the region, the press statement read.
Petitet is a veteran of the digital industry, and has been with Valtech for over 24 years. Prior heading the Singapore and China operations, Petitet took on the role of sales director of Valtech France for a total of five years before moving to Singapore in 2014. According to Petitet, the focus in his new role is to leverage on its talents across Asia Pacific, and deliver first-in-class digital experiences to its clients and maximise market opportunities.
In a press statement, Padiou said that a strong presence in Asia Pacific is key in its overall business strategy. He added that the agency had many global clients asking it to have an even stronger presence and a solid understanding of the local markets in Asia.
“Conversely, we have many existing and potential clients from Asia looking for a global digital partner to help them grow and optimise performance globally. Therefore, strengthening our business operations in this market is a strategic imperative,” Padiou added.
