In the backdrop of high-profile changes in Dentsu Aegis Network’s senior talent, in the last few weeks, comes the news of Phil Teeman, taking charge of agency’s South East Asia operations.

Phil will move from China to Singapore and run the Network as CEO, Dentsu Aegis, Southeast Asia.

Also, Susana Tsui has been named CEO of Dentsu Aegis Netwrok China and she will be based in Shanghai.

Susana held the role of Regional CEO for PHD and will become CEO for Dentsu Aegis Network’s second largest business globally, and a significant market for growth.

Phil takes over from Dick van Motman who became Global and Asia Pacific President of Dentsu creative agencies at the end of 2017.

Commenting on the moves, Nick Waters, CEO Dentsu Aegis Network Asia Pacific said, “We are delighted to bring Susana into the group. She has a great diversity of experience at media, digital and advertising agencies, well suited to today’s integrated market.

“We are fortunate to be able to transfer Phil to lead our Southeast Asia business. He is a high calibre leader with a wealth of global experience and will build on our current momentum,” Nick Waters added.

Susana has held senior leadership roles at agencies such as OgilvyOne, Neo@Ogilvy, and most recently was CEO of PHD Asia Pacific. She was recently named Campaign Asia’s Regional Agency Head of the Year.

Phil Teeman was Managing Director of Dentsu Aegis, China for three years and most recently became CEO, driving strong growth and collaboration within the Group.

Phil said, “I’m excited about the possibility of working with the incredibly fast moving and diverse countries in Southeast Asia. I look forward to working with the teams to bring together those capabilities and provide the best solutions for our clients.”

The moves will be effective in April 2018, both reporting into Nick Waters, CEO of Dentsu Aegis Network Asia Pacific.
