“He’s built a creative unit with Ben Davis, Jake Barrow and Kim Pick that has brilliant momentum. His appointment across Asia provides even deeper collaboration within our network, further reinforcing VMLY&R’s proposition of creating connected brands [not just for our clients but ourselves too,” Tearle added.
