BBDO Singapore strengthens planning team
BBDO Singapore has announced the expansion of their planning department with three new hires.
Kelly Togashi joined BBDO as Associate Planning Director on February 13. Previously, Ms Togashi spent over two years at BBH Singapore and prior to that, was a planner at Leo Burnett Chicago. In this time, she has worked on multinational clients across multiple markets including Kellogg’s, Unilever and FrieslandCampina.
Jaskaran Sahota started with BBDO Singapore at the beginning of January. Prior to joining, Ms Sahota spent one year at McCann Singapore, working primarily on MasterCard. Her experience in the industry includes working across a mix of consumer brands such as Dove, Persil’s Dirt is Good and Signal Toothpaste in the UK.
Alexandra Jo Heller has been with BBDO Singapore since November 2016, starting as an intern, and officially joined the agency as a Junior Planner after her skills were deemed to be too good to lose.
Under the leadership of Rebecca Nadilo, the department will help to service the growing portfolio of brands in both local and regional strategy and content leadership in the industry.
Ms Nadilo said, “Having three new planners is the best start to 2017, and it’s going to be a great year. The mix of people we now have in planning at BBDO are energetic, passionate and experienced in complementary skillsets. Best of all, the dynamic between everyone makes coming to work every day a pleasure.”
Andy Wilson, Head of Strategy at BBDO Asia, said, “Bec is assembling a diverse set of inventive planning minds in the Singapore office, and creating a potent mix of creative problem solving. Exciting times!”
