Appointment comes on back of record growth in Asia of nearly 50 percent over last year
HH Global, announced Paul Jones has been appointed Country Manager for Japan and Korea. The announcement comes on the back of unprecedented growth in the region -– a major financial institution, a sports brand, and a luxury brand have already become new customers in Japan in 2017.
Mr. Jones, 45, has lived and worked in Japan for 15 years. He studied marketing at RMIT University in Melbourne but originally pursued a career in asset management for institutional and private equity from 2002-2011. He entered the world of retail marketing in 2010. From 2012-2016, Paul worked in retail sourcing with ASL Global, and retail activation with CIP Marketing. Since he joined HH Global, the Japanese team has already doubled in size to meet client demand.
“This is a very exciting time for HH Global. I wanted to join because HH Global offers what clients need -– the ability to track ROI, the benefits of a wide ecosystem, and measurable solutions that create real impact. What our clients are asking for is a hybrid firm, one with the creativity and innovation of an agency, but one that’s also a Business Process Outsourcing firm that truly gets what it is to be global. That’s what we are delivering,” said Mr Jones.
HH Global is continuing to invest in the Asia region, and beyond the new opening in Korea, the company recently decided to take full ownership of its business in Australia due to strong client growth.
“We are incredibly pleased with our performance in the region, which reflects our strong results and commitment to organic growth across the world. It is a real coup to get Paul. He joins our very talented cadre of marketing execution experts offering innovative and sustainable marketing solutions execution to some of the biggest brands across the world,” said Robert MacMillan, CEO of HH Global.
