The incumbent Aegis Media Singapore’s CEO, Arun Kumar, is moving to a regional role as director digital operations to further strengthen the digital product for Aegis Media in the region.
Commenting on the change, Ashish Bhasin, chairman India and CEO South East Asia, Aegis Media said, “We are delighted to have Anupriya on board. Her extensive experience in media will help enormously in continuing to grow the Singapore office and build on the success of our existing clients. Simultaneously, after doing a good job as the Singapore CEO, we need Arun to help us further strengthen our digital and search offering in the region and in key markets such as China.”
”I am looking forward to growing Aegis Media Singapore both in scale and in quality. We have some of the best clients in the country like Nokia, OCBC, Tourism Australia and many others so it makes my challenge very interesting,” said Acharya.
