BBH has promoted Paul Ward to regional operations director for Asia. Ward will now be responsible for optimising the operational infrastructure of BBH in Asia which includes Singapore, Shanghai and Mumbai. He will be based in Singapore. He will also be looking for opportunities for how the region can best support the rest of the BBH network.
Ward has been at BBH since 1996 where he started in the production department. Over the years, he has worked as head of production and head of UK operations. In November 2008, he relocated to Mumbai to help open BBH’s Mumbai office.
Charles Wigley, chairman, BBH Asia, said, “Paul is an organisational dynamo. We’re already a tight group in Asia but Paul has the skills and the ideas to help us really innovate in terms of how we develop, produce and deploy our work across the region.”
Gwyn Jones, COO, BBH Group, said, “Paul’s contribution to Mumbai’s opening was immense and his promotion thoroughly deserved. He has a great understanding of how agencies work and can make a big impact in the region and beyond.”
