Dentsu Indonesia announced an entire new trinity of leaders in top management as it gears up for the next phase of growth in 2014. Early in April, Dentsu Indonesia appointed Bobby Arthawan, an industry leader with over 17 years’ experience, as President Director – and Keat Soh, a highly awarded creative with 20 years’ experience across APAC as Executive Creative Director.
Most recently the Chief Executive at GOMOBILE, Bobby with his extensive knowledge of the Indonesian market helped launch the country’s first independent mobile advertising platform. Keat spent the last seven years in Hong Kong, China and Indonesia, and last was Executive Creative Director at iris Worldwide where he led creative strategy for clients Diageo, Levis, Sony Mobile, and XL Telco.
Starting April, Dentsu veteran Kenji Nogami moved from Singapore to take up the position of Technical Advisor at Dentsu Indonesia. With experience working across Dentsu offices in Japan, India and Singapore, Kenji has been responsible for handling a number of regional accounts during his 20 years at the company. He was also responsible for managing Dentsu’s internal regional training programme, the Dentsu Network Innovation College.
“This is a key time for Indonesia as the country is transitioning from having potential and promise to actually delivering. With the arrival of these three professionals, Dentsu Indonesia is ready to harvest during these exciting times. Bobby’s experience and leadership qualities, combined with Keat’s creative power and Kenji’s vision really put us in the perfect position to deliver for our clients in a country that will only become a greater force in this region” said Dick van Motman, Chairman & CEO, Dentsu Aegis Network/SEA, of which the Dentsu Media Group Indonesia is a subsidiary.
