KIT ONG.jpgY&R Vietnam has appointed Kit Ong as Chief Creative Officer.

In just over 3 years, Ong (pictured) has helped transform Y&R Vietnam into the market's most innovative agency. He has instilled a creative culture nurturing experimentation and non-traditional solutions for its most important clients. Nutifood 'Plastic Bottle Life Vest' was a finalist at the recent ADC Tomorrow Awards. It was the only Eco-Design winner worldwide at LIA 2014, and at AdFest 2014, Colgate 'SqueeZee' won Silver for Product Design.

Since joining Y&R Vietnam in 2011, Ong has successfully pitched and won Coca-Cola, Emirates Airlines, Burger King, Domino's Pizza, and VietnaMobile.

Malaysia-born Ong joined Y&R in Oct 2011; his almost 25 years in advertising spans award-winning campaigns for many of the world's leading brands including Nokia, Toyota, Carlsberg and Sony. As Y&R Vietnam CCO, Ong continues to work in partnership with CEO Vincent Van Dessel.

"It always makes me proud when we grow our own talent," said Tony Granger, Global Chief Creative Officer of Y&R. "Kit is a great creative and a super focused and terrific guy. I know he will do great things and continue to help our agency in Vietnam grow in his new position."
