Pornthip and Jimmy.jpgWunderman Shanghai has promoted Pornthip Suchanthabut (pictured left) and Jimmy Wong (right) to Managing Director and Client Services Director, respectively. Reporting to Bryce Whitwam, CEO of Wunderman China, Suchanthabut and Wong are charged with driving the overall strategic direction and growth of the agency while the latter will be responsible for developing client relationships and managing all client portfolios in their new roles.
Suchanthabut previously served as Client Services Director for Wunderman Shanghai. She joined the agency in 2009 to lead the agency's Land Rover business and spearhead the strategy and creative platforms for one of the largest luxury car manufacturers in the world. Her 15-year career in marketing communications is centered on the non-traditional advertising space, with her expertise ranging from event marketing, retail, digital, database marketing and CRM. Prior to joining Wunderman, she worked at both TBWA and Grey.

"Pornthip is one of the most dynamic and experienced integrated marketing experts in China," said Whitwam. "Her razor-sharp approach to strategy, together with her experience, passion and commitment has made her an instrumental part of our leadership team. She truly exemplifies our agency's mission to be creatively driven and data inspired."

Furthering the momentum in China, Wong has also been promoted to Client Service Director. Wong previously served as Business Director for the agency's Ford account business, a team he has managed since he joined the agency in 2008. Changan Ford is Wunderman's largest account in China.

"Jimmy is one of the brightest CRM practitioners in the advertising business with an unparalleled knowledge of the auto communications industry. He brings a wealth of experience and leadership to the growing team and will be a true business partner to our clients," said Whitwam. "I have no doubt that Pornthip and Jimmy will help put Wunderman Shanghai and our business ahead of the competition and continue the agency on its accelerated growth path."
