Campaign UK - - FRONT PAGE - By Maisie Mccabe

Ian Pear­man, chief ex­ec­u­tive of Ab­bott Mead Vick­ers BBDO, is mov­ing to Sin­ga­pore to be pres­i­dent of TBWA Asia as Cilla Snow­ball re­turns to run AMV.

From 1 Au­gust, Pear­man, who joined as a grad­u­ate in 1996 and has been chief ex­ec­u­tive of AMV since 2010, will have re­spon­si­bil­ity for all TBWA agen­cies in Asia. He will re­port to Troy Ruha­nen, pres­i­dent and chief ex­ec­u­tive of TBWA World­wide.

Pear­man re­places Philip Brett, who has been pro­moted to chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer of TBWA World­wide. Af­ter 21 years in Asia, Brett re­turns to Lon­don to drive in­no­va­tion and im­ple­ment best prac­tice.

Snow­ball, AMV’S group chair­man and group chief ex­ec­u­tive, will take on Pear­man’s du­ties at the ad agency.

Pear­man said: “The op­ti­mism, am­bi­tion and rich va­ri­ety of Asia make it a bril­liant can­vas for TBWA’S fo­cus on creativ­ity and in­no­va­tion. I look for­ward to part­ner­ing Phil to tur­bocharge that en­tre­pre­neur­ial spirit.”
