TIME snatches Grace Chan from Celcom Axiata


When it comes to getting the next opportunity, usually that is a hit-and-miss case; with Grace Chan, formerly Head of Brand Marketing for Celcom Axiata, it’s a step up.

After spending 10 years at Axiata and Celcom Axiata in various marketing capacities, Chan is now Marketing Head for TIME dotCom. She starts in late-February 2019 and will report directly to TIME dotCom CEO, Lee Guan Hong.

Chan’s time at Celcom Axiata and Axiata Group, saw her introducing the Axiata brand and expanding into Bangladesh and Cambodia. Some of the successful campaigns she oversaw include the creation of the Axiata Foundation and Axiata Young Talent Programme. She also put together a number of memorable Malaysia Independence Day programmes, festive messages, and corporate social responsibility initiatives.

In her new role, she will manage the marketing, digital, branding, corporate communications, and business transformation efforts for TIME dotCom.
