Listen to this article


( – BBDO Malaysia has appointed Rafiq Ridzwan as Head of Planning.

He joins from JWT where he spent 15 years and brings a wealth of experience having worked on multinational and local brands in Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur.

During his time in Thailand, Rafiq won Bangkok Art Director’s Young Creative award, was part of the team that won a Cannes Lion for Cheers Beer and received the Asian Marketing Effectiveness (AME) awards for Breeze and Tiger campaigns.

John Teoh, General Manager of BBDO Malaysia, says, “Rafiq is exactly the kind of talent we want and need in BBDO – dynamic, hungry and entrepreneurial.”

“His appointment to BBDO Malaysia further strengthens the management team, and his daring, creative and strategic approach to client work will be well suited to the already dynamic team in Malaysia.”

Rafiq adds, “It was the strong magnetic pull of creativity in all disciplines that first attracted me to the role, as well as the romance of comfortably being uncomfortable, the shared purpose of continuous improvement and the ‘We not Me’ mentality.”
