More exits at Comscore’s South East Asia operations

Mumbrella has learnt that there have been more high profile exits at the Asia-Pacific operations of Comscore. The company’s sales director for South East Asia Alvin Tan admitted he was no longer with the organisation but had no further comment to offer.

Mumbrella has also heard that Comscore vice president for South East Asia Jonah Ken Tan is no longer with the firm. Tan could not be reached for comment.

When asked if there were a fresh round of redundancies, after the announcement in May which saw the departure of Asia Pacific senior vice president Joe Nguyen, a spokesperson for Comscore said: “We respect the privacy of our employees, but can share that we are excited about the management team we have in place.

“Our recently-promoted regional leadership team of Guido Fambach, executive vice-president, EMEA & APAC, and Kedar Gavane, senior vice-president, APAC, are seasoned leaders who are highly regarded for their deep experience and knowledge in the industry.”

When asked if specific personnel had been let go, the spokesperson said: “We wouldn’t be able to comment on individual employees.”

Comscore had announced a 10% reduction in its global workforce this May in the wake of a 3.4% decline in year-on-year revenue in its first quarter.

It had resulted in the exit of Nguyen, after nearly a decade with the organisation. It was believed at the time that Nguyen had offered to leave on the condition that there be no further redundancies.

Nguyen’s replacement is Kedar Gavane, a founding member of Comscore’s India office. As senior vice president for Asia-Pacific, he reports to Guido Fambach who has been promoted to executive vice president Europe, Middle East and Africa and Asia-Pacific.
