"I'm excited and grateful for the opportunity in teaming up with Adrian again and supporting his vision for MullenLowe Malaysia," said Teoh. "The plan now is to rack up the new business wins and organically grow our existing businesses to drive the agency forward and propel MullenLowe to even greater heights. I chose MullenLowe because client's business needs are different today. Agencies need to provide more than just creative solutions to give clients a fair share of attention," he continued.
"Having Gavin join our ranks shows the positivism already coming from MullenLowe Malaysia this year," said Sng. "We have hit the ground running with a total of 6 pitch wins since Sept of 2017, which has positioned MullenLowe Malaysia to take on 2018 by the horns. With Gavin's vast experience in operations and strategic capabilities, I am certain Gavin will hit the ground running and have an immediate impact on MullenLowe's growth," he continued.
 
The announcement follows the recent integration of MullenLowe Group's operations in Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong to create MullenLowe Group Southeast Asia; the latest step in the building out of MullenLowe Group's hyperbundled model across Asia.
