Cohn & Wolfe, a global communications agency, has announced the appointment of Doug Buemi as Vice-Chairman, Regional Director, Asia Pacific. Buemi is a Cohn & Wolfe alumnus who established the agency’s presence in China in 2006 with the opening of its Shanghai office. He also held several other leadership positions at Cohn & Wolfe including Vice-Chairman, Los Angeles market leader and Western Region CEO.
In this newly created global leadership position, Buemi will have management oversight of the Asia-Pacific region, working closely with regional market leaders to help grow the agency’s business, build capabilities and develop talent. He will also advise on global strategy and partner with Donna Imperato, Cohn & Wolfe CEO, to expand the agency’s presence in the region.
Buemi joins Cohn & Wolfe from Ogilvy Public Relations, where he was Regional Executive Advisor, Asia Pacific. At Ogilvy he continued his long-time leadership role in Ford’s Asia Pacific region and provided counsel and training for a range of top companies such as GlaxoSmithKline, Janssen-Cilag, Tesco Lotus and DuPont.
“I couldn’t be happier to welcome Doug back. He is a proven leader who understands the Cohn & Wolfe culture, and who brings deep brand marketing expertise and decades of experience counseling clients on complex business challenges,” said Imperato. “Doug also recognises what it takes to be successful in the Asia Pacific region, having established numerous winning ventures there for Cohn & Wolfe and other companies.”
“It’s really great to be back helping Cohn & Wolfe continue its remarkable growth in Asia Pacific and expand its offerings elsewhere,” said Buemi. “I’m delighted to be working with Donna, the Cohn & Wolfe account teams and clients to capture even more success in the world’s fastest growing markets.”
