Carat Malaysia CEO Lorraine Capel makes an exit

Carat Malaysia’s CEO, Lorraine Capel is saying goodbye to Carat Malaysia after two years. She was appointed CEO in Oct 2016 when she replaced Bala Pomaleh who joined IPG Mediabrands.

Karan Tyagi, General Manager of Carat, will be overseeing operations in the interim.

Lorraine was instrumental in securing the Heineken Malaysia account and prior to that she was head of integration at Astro.

Capel also previously spent 11 years in GroupM Malaysia, where she held several senior roles, with her last being the managing director of Maxus Malaysia, now known as Wavemaker. Before GroupM, she led the Procter & Gamble business at Starcom.

“The last two years has been a rewarding journey indeed, professionally and personally. It has been a privilege to work and collaborate with some great talent in Carat Malaysia as well as across Dentsu Aegis,” she said adding that her immediate priority would be spending time with family before deciding what comes next.

CEO of Dentsu Aegis Network Malaysia, Nicky Lim, said Lorraine had been “instrumental” in building Carat’s business and positively impacting collaboration across the group.

“We thank her for the leadership she has shown throughout her time with the business, the contribution she has made, and the support she has given to the management. We respect her decision and she goes with our best wishes for the future,” Lim said.
