Menezes has been promoted from senior account director, a role he has held since joining Y&R Malaysia in July 2013.
With over 15 years’ in advertising and communications across India, Indonesia and Malaysia, Menezes’ experience spans international icons including Coke, Nescafe and Nestle to major local brands like BRI Bank and Permata Bank.

Commenting upon the appointment, managing director Lisa Hezila said: “Less than a year ago Nigel joined our passionate team of brand communication enthusiasts and within that short time-span, he has been instrumental in stabilizing key accounts and growing the businesses under his portfolio, as Y&R Malaysia continues to climb both the creative and new business rankings.”
