Publicis One Indonesia hands Brian Capel dual role of CEO and CCO

Publicis One has named Brian Capel as chief executive officer in Indonesia, as Anne Ridwan leaves the agency after just one year in the role.

Capel will formally take over leadership on June 1 and will handle the CEO role in a dual capacity with his current position as chief creative officer.

Anne Ridwan

Ridwan first joined Leo Burnett in 2012 as managing director of Alpha245 and was promoted to the role of group CEO of Leo Burnett, Publicis One and Saatchi & Saatchi for Indonesia in 2015. Last May, she was made CEO of Publicis One only.

The agency said she is leaving to “pursue other opportunities”.

Capel has 26 years of experience in the communications industry working in leading creative agency networks including Ogilvy, Leo Burnett and DMB&B across Malaysia and Indonesia.

Publicis One Asia CEO Nicolas Menat said: “We’d like to take this opportunity to thank Anne for her contributions to the company. Together with Brian, Anne has led the growth of Leo Burnett and lay the foundation for Publicis One in Indonesia. We wish her every success in her next step.”
