Vincent Van Dessel has taken the top job at Publicis in Vietnam, Mumbrella can reveal.

Based in Ho Chi Minh City, Van Dessel takes on the managing director role at the agency of 43 staff and clients including Heineken, Nestle, Maggi, Nestea, Garnier, Citibank, Kinh Do and Ecopark.

Van Dessel moves to Publicis after a stint at Y&R Indochina as CEO.

He swaps agencies with Peter Skalberg, who recently moved from Publicis Indonesia back to Y&R to lead the Indochina operation out of Vietnam’s commercial capital.

The Belgian moved to Ho Chi Minh City from Brussels a year ago to join Y&R. He was previously CEO of McCann Belgium.
