This is once again evident both through Rose’s well deserved promotion to Maxus APAC client leader and the fact key talents such as Kishan see GroupM and Maxus Vietnam as the obvious next career step. I am very happy Kishan has decided to take on the challenge. His calm and friendly personality, senior leadership skills and established network within Maxus and GroupM organisations will allow him to hit the ground running. Rose and our entire Maxus team have done an outstanding job for our clients these last few years and I’m confident Kishan is exactly the sort of team player needed to take it to the next level.”

His new role will allow him to work with GroupM Vietnam CEO Jacob Kvist and will be leading the digital transformation for clients in the market, bringing the power of GroupM capabilities in driving the change in thinking, media product and doing it in the most efficient & effective way.

 

Maxus increasingly is looking at driving ‘planning of consumer actions’ as its central vision by bring the voice of consumer central to its business and meshing together the data and content skills.

 

Commenting on his appointment, Kumar added, “Vietnam is a true reflection of today’s fast changing media & consumer landscape. GroupM has been pioneering change in Vietnam and I couldn’t have asked for a better opportunity to start this exciting new innings of my career. Maxus Vietnam has done remarkably well under Rose’s leadership and I look forward to consolidate further and help our clients succeed by leading them into change. While doing so, I’m equally looking forward to working with my wonderful colleagues at Maxus & GroupM Vietnam.”

 

Varghese said, “Kishan is an excellent candidate to lead this market as he has demonstrated in various previous roles in India. His people skills combined with great passion for building clients business and knowledge of media industry is something that will help us in the next phase of growth in Vietnam. Am happy that we are able to time and again give successful career options within the group for star performers and Kishan certainly meets that criteria.”
