VML Qais, the Y&R-aligned digital marketing agency, has hired a new head of digital in Indonesia.

Piotr Jakubowski joins the agency from Leo Burnett Indonesia, where he was a digital strategist.

Head of digital is a new position at the agency.

Born and raised in Jakarta, Jakubowski has also worked at Saatchi & Saatchi and the Dean Media Group.

Keith Timimi, chairman of VML Qais Asia, said: “Indonesia is a strategic growth market for VML globally. Working closely with the Y&R Group in Indonesia, we have built a fabulous business in a very short period of time.”

“Our roster of clients is really second to none, and includes Danone Mizone, 3M and Combiphar. While we have a great execution team on the ground, it was vital to get the right kind of leader in place. We have high hopes for Piotr and the entire team.”

Jakubowski’s departure from Leo Burnett comes a fortnight after it emerged that the agency’s group MD Thomas Sutton would be starting his own marketing business in Indonesia.
