Wong: leaves after 2 years

Ad agency JWT has announced a new leadership team in Hong Kong following the resignation of CEO Dennis Wong after two years at the helm.

Wong said in a statement: “It is very unfortunate that I have to take a break because of my personal and family reasons, otherwise I would definitely not leave the agency that I really enjoy working for.”

Replacing him will be Dennis Lam, who is promoted from client services director to GM, and long-serving JWT executive Mark Webster, who moves into a non-executive chairman role.

Wong added: “With the talent that we have, and their commitment and passion, together with the support of Regional and North Asia management, I’m sure JWT Hong Kong will be going from strength to strength.”

JWT’s APAC CEO Tom Doctoroff said: “I wish Dennis (Wong) all the best. In the last two years, he has unified our agency, in terms of product aspiration and culture. “This is a legacy that will endure well into the future.”

Doctoroff said of the agency’s new GM: “Dennis’ passion for client satisfaction, delivered through uncommon resourcefulness, is peerless. He is a win-win guy who instinctively knows how to pull together a team.”

“As Dennis assumes the reins of command, he is also eager to strengthen a unique product offering, one rooted in media-neutrality and digital accountability and engineered for Hong Kong, perhaps the most demanding and results-driven environments in Asia,” he said.
