Magie Tan passes away

2 years ago


Penang-born Magie Tan made her name in the Malaysian advertising film industry long before she left for China many years ago. She started Godmother Productions in Shanghai City 16 years ago and was the Executive Producer of award-winning commercials that have been screened across the region.
I visited her office in Shanghai a few years ago and she was the same bubbly person I had known when we worked together in McCann- Erickson Malaysia in the late 80s. Many friends in the business who knew Magie, acknowledge that we have lost a leading light in the advertising industry.
Her younger brother Danny writes, “The most wonderful person in my life has left us peacefully. When in Tokyo recently she had the flu and was not feeling well, but she refused to come home to Malaysia as she wanted everybody to have a good time at our family trip.”
As this year comes to a close, we mourn the loss of a dear friend, industry champion and all-round do-gooder Magie.
