The World: Hong Kong - ZenithOptimedia names Skinner as new MD

ZenithOptimedia has appointed Chris Skinner as the managing director of its Hong Kong operations.

The role has been created to help the media agency cope with its expanding business in the region following client wins including Smartone-Vodafone, 7-Eleven and Global Beauty.

Skinner will be briefed to create a new structure for the agency and bring in new talent. He reports to the chief executive, Andras Vigh, and will be supported by Ada Wong, who heads Optimedia, and Sindy Chow, who runs Zenith.

Skinner left OMD UK in 2000 to join the Hong Kong office as the regional business director.
