DDB group director Thomas Ong returns to JWT to lead business development division

ONgA former account director at J Walter Thompson Singapore, Thomas Ong, has returned to the company to head its business development division.

Ong was client services director at JWT from 2006 to late 2010 before a two year spell as director of client services at Havas Worldwide Singapore, formerly Euro RSCG, where he worked with brands including Coca Cola Singapore, Air France, Bosch, Carlsberg Singapore and Credit Suisse.

He re-joins his former employer from DDB Singapore where he spend 16 months working on the Health Promotion Board and National Library Board in his role as group business director.

Ong will oversee several key accounts at J. Walter Thompson Singapore, including Treasury Wine Estates, in addition to his business development role.

JWT Singapore chief executive Peter Womersley said it was “wonderful to have Thomas returning to the JWT fold”.

“He is a seasoned practitioner who will add yet more strength to our senior management team,” he said. “This hire is particularly important given the spate of recent wins the agency has enjoyed.”
