Dentsu shifts Aki Kakegawa from New York to Singapore to run regional client unit

Japanese advertising network Dentsu has moved one of its most senior suits from New York to Singapore to run its multinational client business for the region.

Aki Kakegawa, who has been with the agency since 1989, takes on the role of senior vice president and director of multinational clients for Dentsu based in Singapore.

He will manage Dentsu’s key client relationships in Southeast Asia and Australia.

Dick van Motman, chairman and CEO of Dentsu Network/Asia, said: “Aki brings with him a wealth of experience, boasting an impressive track record of delivering consistent ROI for the business across Japan, the US and South America.”

This is an exciting time for Dentsu as we continue to expand across the regions, strengthening our offering to provide clients with the results-driven creative innovation they have come to expect. Aki has been a central part of the growth of the Dentsu Network globally, and I very much look forward to seeing him in action in Singapore.”
