McCann Worldgroup Asia has announced the appointment of Samantha Strauss as Regional Director of Communications. Based in Singapore, she will report to Charles Cadell, President of McCann Worldgroup Asia-Pacific.
Strauss will be responsible for internal and external communications, aligning key stakeholders to raise the profile of the network across the region.
Strauss moves from BBDO Asia, where she has spent the past three-and-a-half years overseeing their PR and communications. She led the PR for the agencyâs ground-breaking âWorld Under Waterâ campaign in 2014, which âtook over social mediaâ (according to CNN) and resulted in a partnership with the UNEP.
Prior to BBDO, Strauss held various event production and management positions with Haymarket offices in London, Singapore and Hong Kong. She also spent two years with FutureGov magazine in Singapore, specialising in Asian Government summits.
âWe are delighted to have Samantha join our regional team. She is a very talented communications expert and will be a big part of our continued emphasis on âTruth Well Toldâ and the great work we are doing with our clients across Asia-Pacificâ, said Cadell.
Strauss said, âMcCann has a truly impressive and dynamic regional team with a strong vision for the development of the network. I am excited to have the opportunity to help craft the story around âTruth Well Toldââ.
