Leo Burnett Hong Kong promotes Milker Ho to ECD

Leo Burnett Hong Kong has promoted Milker Ho, the role of executive creative director, a role that has been left vacant for nearly two years.

Formerly the agency’s group creative director, Ho replaces the former dual ECDs Alfred Wong and Brian Ma, who had both departed the Hong Kong office by October 2015.

Ma was transferred to Leo Burnett’s Chicago office, while Wong left the organisation altogether.

Ho will report to Carol Lam, president and chief creative officer of Leo Burnett Greater China. His appointment follows that of Jeff Ho, who was named managing director of the agency’s Hong Kong office following the departure of chief executive Alex Lee for personal reasons.

Lam said: “Milker is a truly seasoned creative practitioner with a great heart and soul. He always walks the walk, and puts his words into action. He is dedicated to nurturing new breeds of thinkers to deliver integrated channel solutions for clients. By partnering with Jeff, Milker will help form the perfect duo to lead Leo Burnett Hong Kong to new heights.”

Ho joined Leo Burnett in January, 2000 and over the past 17 years he has delivered campaigns for clients across financial, food and beverage, retail, FMCG, travel & leisure, and properties development sectors.
