He is exactly the kind of talent we want and need in BBDO - dynamic, hungry and entrepreneurial."

Ridzwan commented, "BBDO Malaysia is recognised in the market as being one of the best. It was the strong magnetic pull of creativity in all disciplines that first attracted me to the role, as well as the romance of comfortably being uncomfortable, the shared purpose of continuous improvement and the 'We not Me' mentality."
