pi global are delighted to announce the appointment of Kunal Guha as Regional Director for Asia, based at our office in Singapore. Kunal has joined pi to manage our existing client base and further develop our growth across Asia. He brings with him over 13 years of international experience in the branding, design and integrated communications industry, working with companies such as Saatchi & Saatchi, Landor and SapientNitro in various regional and global management roles.
Born in Mumbai, India and schooled in the US he then worked in New York in global-reaching roles before returning to Asia in 2008. This has provided him with valuable multi-cultural world views and experience of our markets across a range of sectors including FMCG, non-profit, technology, fashion, electronics, retail, transport, luxury, corporate government and finance.
“Asia is such a dynamic and exciting market to be in, boasting arguably two of the fastest growing emerging nations in the world, some of the most densely populated countries and some of the fastest growing economies. Whilst brought together by geography, the cultural diversity and its intricacies makes for quite a complex region, albeit a very exciting one.
Brands undoubtedly have a big role to play here now and in the future, and it is the ones that are able to unlock the ‘mysteries of the East’ and appeal to a vast and varied set of consumers across these markets who will be best poised to succeed. It gives me great pleasure to join the pi global team as the Regional Director for Asia, spearheading pi in the region and helping our clients bring forth the most compelling branding propositions to our consumers across Asian markets.”
Kirsten Jensen, pi’s Global Strategy Director comments: ‘This is a very important appointment for us. We are delighted with Kunal coming on board to head up both our Singapore and Mumbai offices. He joins us at a pivotal and exciting time of the further expansion of the pi footprint in Asia’.
