The three women join a list of 12 ‘power profiles’ two thirds of which are men.

They include Lego chief commercial officer Loren I. Shuster, Standard Chartered’s global digital head Damien Cummings, We Are Social Asia boss Simon Kemp, and Chris Reed, the founder of LinkedIn specialist agency Black Marketing.

WPP’s chief digital officer Scott Spirit, Publicis Singapore head of social Avtar Ram Singh, Intel’s Jamshed Wadia, Malcolm Wong, the VP of operations at ad tech firm Smaato, and Dentsu’s Guilet Libby complete the list, which LinkedIn has declined to provide a ranking for.

Names to have moved off last year’s list for Singapore’s top marketers on the business social network include Renaud Besnard, formerly Google’s head of marketing for Southeast Asia, who moved into the top regional marketing job at Uber six months ago, and Frederique Covington, who recently left Twitter to join Visa as regional CMO.

The list of the top CEOs on LinkedIn in Singapore includes boss Darius Cheung, who was forced to apologise last month for the conduct of an employee who vented his frustration about the late-coming of AR game Pokemon Go to Singapore in an angry post on Facebook.

Cameron Priest, the CEO of Singapore-based inventory management startup TradeGecko, Krystal Choo, the founder and CEO of Wander, a travel app for singles, and Roger Egan, the co-founder and CEO RedMart are also on the CEO list.

The list of power profiles for the tech sector includes the regional director of Airbnb, Julian Persaud, Twitter’s Chandan Deep, Uber APAC’s head of trust and safety Julie Bainbridge, and Facebook’s regional boss, Dan Neary.
