Speaking on the appointment, Rupen Desai, Regional President Lowe Asia-Pacific said, "Mazuin is a great addition to Lowe. She's a proven professional, driven and has a great reputation in the market. Her partnership with Brandie Tan, our award-winning Executive Creative Director, gives us a team stronger than ever before. We believe her leadership along with the rest of the management team will make Lowe Malaysia an agency to reckon with. These are, indeed, exciting times for us."
 
Speaking of Lowe Malaysia Zin said, "Lowe Malaysia is the rare combination of an agency that keeps their client list select, yet remains one of the top agencies in the country. They come up with surprising, unexpected ideas, and are at the forefront of effectiveness, which is increasingly becoming the benchmark of performance in our business."
 
About her role, she added, "I'm looking forward to joining Lowe Malaysia - the team is a strong combination of experienced hands and new blood, which gives the agency both a strong foundation and a hunger to keep getting better.  The client list is blue-chip - every single one is either number 1 or 2 in their category"
 
In a related move, Khairudin Rahim, the current Managing Director of Lowe Malaysia has been elevated to the position of Chairman. Khairudin has led the agency for over 17 years.
 
Speaking on the occasion, Khairudin said, "I can think of no better person to lead Lowe into its next phase of growth than Mazuin. She has the extraordinary talent of both developing and maintaining a client's trust to do the absolutely right thing for their brand, while at the same time rallying and inspiring her team to produce great work and effective results."
