Sven Huberts takes up the Regional Managing Director position at Isobar Asia-Pacific

Sven Huberts_Jean Lin_Isobar.jpgSven Huberts is to take up the role of Regional Managing Director at Isobar Asia-Pacific, effective December.

Based in Singapore and reporting to Jean Lin, Global CEO Isobar, Huberts will lead the global digital marketing agency across the region and drive the business forward. His appointment follows the promotion of Jean Lin from Asia-Pacific CEO to Global CEO Isobar, earlier this year.

Huberts (pictured on left) will relocate from Isobar in the Netherlands where he held the role of Managing Director since 2010. During his tenure there, Huberts rebuilt Isobar by merging three agencies within mobile, social and digital activation into one integrated Isobar offering. He also led the recent acquisition of Social Embassy. Under his leadership the agency tripled its profitability and won blue chip clients, including Bacardi, Grolsch Global, KPMG, Nokia, Mondelez and GM.
Huberts has over 11 years' experience in the digital marketing industry, half of which have been spent at Isobar. He was one of the founding members of Marvellous (Amsterdam) which rebranded to Isobar and led brand transformative work such as Popnetics for Grolsch Global, the mobile strategy and execution for leading Dutch fashion retailer de Bijenkorf, and the mobile experience campaign for adidas marathon which was awarded at the Webby Awards, Cannes Lions and D&AD.
 
Jean Lin, Global CEO Isobar (pictured on right), said: "Sven has an excellent business mind and track record, inspiring teams to deliver the 'Ideas without Limits' that transform businesses and brands. That, coupled with his entrepreneurial and energetic spirit, make him the ideal person to lead the agency in its next chapter of growth and success."
