He said: “In this industry, 11 years of service with a network – and 25 with one group – speaks volumes about the unique culture and spirit of camaraderie within the group. We have certainly accomplished a lot over the years. I will always look back at these years with fondness and pride, and have utmost confidence in the group’s continued success.”

 

Clement Chung

Wong will effectively be replaced by PHD Hong Kong general manager Clement Chung, who will take on the role of managing director on December 1.

“PHD has been an integral part of my identity for the past 11 years; together, we have grown and experienced some amazing things,” said Chung. “Having been with the agency since its inception, I am honoured and excited to take up the challenge of driving PHD – a dynamic and innovative brand – to further success, by continuing to find a better way for our clients, people and product.”

Susana Tsui, CEO for PHD APAC, added: “We can’t thank Ray enough for his 25 years of long and loyal service to the group, and especially for his role as the pioneer of PHD Hong Kong. Though we will miss him immensely, we are also excited for him as he takes on new opportunities. We also welcome Clement into his new role at the helm of PHD Hong Kong. It’s a well-deserved promotion that reflects his relentless efforts and commitment to the PHD brand. I’m excited to work with Clement on taking the agency to even greater heights.”
