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.?

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.?
