Singapore : OgilvyOne Worldwide Singapore has promoted Melvyn Lim to the position of Executive Creative Director, effective immediately.
No stranger to Singapore’s digital and design scene, Melvyn is one of the founding members of The Design Society, an organization that is dedicated to raising the general standards of design in Singapore. He has also racked up accolades aplenty, from Cannes to Clios, Effies to One Show, and Spikes Asia to Creative Circle Awards.
Melvyn’s appointment fills up the role vacated by Pete Moss when he was promoted to Vice President, Customer Experience, OgilvyOne Asia Pacific in October 2010.
“Melvyn has a brilliant mind and is constantly thinking out of the box,” comments Steve Back, Chief Creative Officer, Ogilvy & Mather Singapore. “He has a wonderful sense of curiosity about the world and this inquisitiveness has translated into innovative solutions like the Nike Trackball. I have no doubt that as ECD, Melvyn will help to sharpen our creative product and shape the evolution of this digital revolution.”
Since joining OgilvyOne Singapore in 2005, Melvyn has risen rapidly through the ranks. Currently, he is the global digital lead on the Ponds account. Other accounts that he is spearheading include Nike, SingTel, Economic Development Board and Levi’s.
