McCann Worldgroup Malaysia Appoints Adrian Ho as Creative Director
In the latest of several senior talent acquisitions, McCann Worldgroup Malaysia has hired Adrian Ho as Creative Director. Reporting to Ng Heok Seong, the agency’s CCO, Ho will be responsible for running the Celcom account.
Ho returns to McCann Worldgroup with more than 20 years of experience in the industry, having worked his way up from Junior Designer to Creative Group Head at some of Malaysia’s best-known agencies in the interim, including, Batey Ads, EuroRSCG, BBDO, Publicis and Arachnid Interactive.
Ho has worked in many different parts of Asia Pacific on a wide range of clients, notably Maxis, Sara Lee, Mondelez Twisties, Volvo, ANZ Bank, Coca-Cola, Nokia and Unilever.
Interestingly, Ho took a short hiatus away from the industry, to pursue his love of music, opening a club in China with a focus on youth. He has also pursued turn-tabling, spinning at Kuala Lumpur’s hottest clubs under the guise of “DJ Rksksa”.
“It’s fantastic to attract a talent like Adrian. His rich and diverse experience will be an interesting addition to our agency,” said Sean Sim, CEO of McCann Worldgroup Malaysia. “Adrian is very plugged into the youth market and will definitely be at the forefront of all our youth-centric campaigns.”
Ho added: “I am excited to be back with McCann and leading the Celcom creative team. It is an honour to work for such well-known organisations in Malaysia and I look forward to producing innovative and exciting work with the team.”
