Two new members join the GOVT Singapore team

Kevin Joseph and Damien Cheng.jpgGOVT Singapore has expanded its office with the addition of two new members.

Senior Copywriter Kevin Joseph (pictured left) joins from Young & Rubicam Singapore, reuniting with his ex-partner and current Creative Group Head at GOVT Singapore, Katherine Khor. With experience in Land Rover, Caltex, M1, Robinson, Coca-Cola, Rolex, Health Promotion Board and Ben & Jerry's, Joseph brings with him over 7 years of experience from Y&R and Ogilvy.
Damien Cheng (right) also joins GOVT Singapore as an Account Manager from BatesChi & Partners, having been the account handler for Pernod Ricard's Martell and Chivas Regal. Cheng started his career in Dentsu handling Toyota and DSTA, before moving on to Grey Group Singapore and working on Sentosa, Lenovo, Resorts World Sentosa and Asia-Pacific Breweries. In GOVT Singapore, he will lead a team of three to work on Hennessy, Maggi, and leading the regional Betty Crocker and MINI Asia accounts.

Managing Director, GOVT Singapore, Leon Lai said, "Being able to attract two key talents in Kevin and Damien is testament that the agency is moving in the right direction. We are very focused in our pursuit to be one of the best independent agencies in Singapore, and let's not lie to ourselves, these two boys could have gone anywhere they've wanted. Being an independent is a double edged sword, yet the fact that we've been consistently attracting talents to join us on this adventure of ours, gives us the belief that we can compete."

Tim Chan, Creative Director, GOVT Singapore, said, "We're pretty stoked to get both Kevin and Damien on board. Kevin is hungry, talented and will fit right in with the other creative misfits in the house. But most importantly, they're both really nice chaps as well."
