One of the regional management team of ad agency Host has left to join strategy shop Naked Communications.

Paul Ward joined Host as regional chief operating officer when the Sydney-based agency launched a Singapore office in January, but leaves to join Naked as group chief production officer, a newly created role.

Ward spent 14 years at BBH in London, India and Singapore before joining Host as part of the start-up team to form a pan-Pacific micro-network.

He starts at Naked in January.

“Although Paul has a global role, he is Sydney based and I’m looking forward to working closely with him to lead the next chapter of Naked here,” said Carl Ratcliffe, the new CEO of Naked Australia, where Ward will be based.

Ward said: “I can’t wait to start work with the Naked team. Naked has one of the most powerful brand names in the business and is renown for its industry-leading clever and creative work. I’m awfully excited about our road ahead.”
