WPP marketing agency Wunderman has a new regional boss.

Long-serving APAC president Stephane Faggianelli is moving into a new role running Europe, Middle East and Africa, and has been replaced by Martin Conneen, who was chief operating officer of Wunderman’s Brand Experience division.

Conneen will be based in Singapore.

He will be supported by three executives recently promoted by Faggianelli – Krishnan Menon, regional chief client officer, Nimesh Desai, MD of the Southeast Asian operation, and Michel Mommjat, MD of AdPeople Asia Pacific.

Wunderman’s global CEO Daniel Morel said in a press release: “Martin and Stephane have both demonstrated commitment to their clients and great loyalty to Wunderman. Stephane is an expert on building brands with a distinguished history of providing clients with creative solutions. His efforts are only matched by Martin’s commitment to organize teams to deliver in today’s increasingly complex data and digital landscape.”

Faggianelli, who has run the region since 2006, said: “I am extremely proud of our outstanding achievements in Asia Pacific and I would like to thank all those who have contributed to our success in the past years. We are now one of the largest digital networks and have a very strong team in place to continue our developments. I look forward to moving to my new role and working with the EMEA teams to achieve similar success and expansion.”
