Miranda Dimopoulos, the executive director of digital industry body IAB Singapore, has taken on a wider role as chief executive, and APD Singapore boss Tobias Wilson has risen from vice-chair to chairman as current chair Olivier Legrand steps down.

Dimopoulos has played an influential role in raising the profile of digital marketing in Singapore since taking on the role of executive director almost two years ago, quadrupling membership over that period. Her new role gives her voting rights on key decisions made by the industry body.

Olivier Legrand, who has led the IAB as chairman for a number of years, steps down following a promotion of his own. He was named APAC MD of LinkedIn earlier this month.

The newly appointed vice-chair is Su-Lin Tan, the deputy head, digital division, at Singapore Press Holdings.

Also joining the IAB leadership council is Alex Khan, MD of AOL Platforms Southeast Asia.

Leaving the leadership council, which was elected in February of this year, is Neal Moore, co-founder of content agency Click2View.

Dimopoulos said: “I warmly thank Olivier for his steady leadership and wise counsel during his two years as chairman of the IAB. He will remain on the IAB Leadership Council so we will continue to have his industry insights and unique vision for digital marketing in Asia.”

“Tobias Wilson is the CEO at APD (Asia Pacific Digital), and as an industry leader brings to the IAB a wealth of knowledge in creative, social, mobile, digital and traditional,” she added.
