Former JWT Asia boss Michael Maedel joins executive search firm Grace Blue

Michael MaedelThe former regional boss of creative agency JWT, Michael Maedel, has a new job as Asia Pacific chairman of executive search firm Grace Blue.

The move comes two months after the German founded management and equity partners firm Vivat.

He will continue to be based in Singapore, and calls time on his role as non-executive chairman of JWT APAC. He will still do some consulting work for JWT, the agency has said.

Maedel was chairman of JWT Asia Pacific for almost eight years. He was succeed by Tom Doctoroff and Colvyn Harris, who were appointed Asia Pacific CEO and South Asia CEO, respectively, just over two years ago.

Maedel spent 25 years of his career with JWT.
