Carat Asia Pacific strengthens regional team

Carat strengthens regional team_FINAL.jpgCarat Asia Pacific has appointed Kevin Walsh as Chief Digital Officer, a move from within the network, and relocated Clay Schouest, Head of Strategy and Innovation from Shanghai to their head office in Singapore to better steer Strategy and Innovation for Carat in the region.
"As our business grows, we need to look at what our clients need and to deliver on that. Digital is ever evolving - in order to be real innovators we need the talent to support that. Kevin has a vast amount of experience in digital having experienced first-hand the development of the digital media industry over the last decade. Clay is a pragmatic innovator, a creative mind with strategy at its core. I have no doubt that these two additions to the regional team here in Singapore will take great steps to redefine media and push the boundaries to create effective and innovative work for our clients." said Sean O'Brien, CEO of Carat Asia Pacific.
Walsh has been working in the media industry for over 20 years, focussing on digital since 2000. He spent 14 years in Australia, as Executive Media Director of leading agency NetX which won agency of the year five times during his tenure. He then went on to open Neo@Ogilvy in Sydney and Melbourne as Managing Director for the company. In 2010 he moved to iProspect and became Managing Director of Australia before being promoted to the role of Managing Director for Asia Pacific. The recent move within the network from iProspect to Carat will see Kevin use his vast digital and media knowledge to drive digital innovation in the region for the media agency.
