The Singapore chapter of the Interactive Advertising Bureau of Southeast Asia has revealed a batch of the names in contention for its new leadership council, with the number of nominees having almost tripled on last year.

Among the 25 nominees are Facebook Southeast Asia boss Myungjo Choi, Twitter’s regional marketing director Frederique Covington, Jeffrey Seah, Southeast head of Starcom MediaVest Group and Craig Law-Smith, global head of ad strategy at SingTel.

Also in contention are Olivier Legrand, LinkedIn’s APAC head of marketing, Kim Douglas, Singapore and HK MD of Sapient Nitro, Keith Timimi, chairman of VML Qais, Tan Sulin from Singapore Press Holdings and the co-founder of Click2View, Neal Moore.

Others include Google’s Joanna Catalano, Outbrain boss Anthony Hearne and Andrew Coroneo, head of MEC Singapore’s digital unit.

The window to make a nomination has closed, but the voting period is open until Thursday 13 February. The results will be announced on 18 February.

Meanwhile, under the stewardship of newly appointed executive director Miranda Dimopoulos, the IAB has signed more new members in the first month of this year than it did in all of 2013.

The new members, which make up a 35 per cent hike in membership numbers, include Twitter, SVG Media, TubeMogul, Lotame, MinerLabs, Criteo, Meetrics, SapientNitro, StrikeAd, MEC, @ccomplice, The Trade Desk, Click2View, HootSuite and Facebook.

Dimopoulos joined the IAB from DMG, the organiser of Ad:Tech, earlier this year with a brief to broaden the body’s membership beyond traditional publishers and steer the digital ad industry towards its goal of delivering 20 per cent of all spend expenditure by 2020.
