Farrah to manage BBDO Malaysia!

(marketingmagazine.com.my) – Farrah Harith-Mcpherson did not have to go very far to make her next move.

She is walking up the road to BBDO Malaysia and starts next week, spitting distance from M&C Saatchi in Lorong Dungun to Wisma UOA Damansara.

Farrah replaces John Teoh who moved on after seven years at BBDO Malaysia.

Client Service Director at M&C Saatchi, where she worked for almost eight and a half years handling brands like Celcom, Malaysia Airlines, BOH, Sime Darby, Wonda, PLUS and more….. Farrah has now been appointed as the agency’s General Manager.

Prior to M&C Saatchi, she was GM of CRUSH Communications for four years, after a two-year stint as Senior Media Planner at Zenith Optimedia Malaysia.

As a marketing and branding professional with over 17 years of experience, Farrah is the ultimate multi-tasker. At M&C, she managed multiple teams and over 15 clients, while spearheading new business leads.

A graduate of George Washington University, she majored in Marketing with a minor in Advertising.

Richard Fraser, President BBDO Southeast Asia said; “Farrah is a genuine leader who brings impressive credentials to BBDO Malaysia, along with a proven track record developing long-term client partnerships and growing business. Her appointment signals a new and exciting era at BBDO Malsia and we are delighted to have her on board.”

Farrah said, “I’m extremely excited to join the most creative agency network in the world and am looking forward to collaborating with the talented team at BBDO to drive the business forward in Malaysia, and deliver the most creatively compelling and effective work for our clients.”
