Harris, who has worked at RKCR/Y&R for the last twelve years, will move to the Philippines later this year, and will be responsible for leading an agency that is one of the largest in Manila, with a client list that includes FedEx, Johnson & Johnson and Pepsi.

He will work closely with BBDO Guerrero’s chairman and chief creative officer David Guerrero and report directly to Chris Thomas, the chairman and chief executive of BBDO/Proximity Asia Pacific.

Harris fills a position that has been vacant since January, when the former chief executive Paul Roebuck resigned to join Saatchi & Saatchi Malaysia.

During his time at RKCR/Y&R, Harris was responsible for overseeing a number of key accounts, including Danone, Lloyds TSB and the COI.

Previously he has also worked at BMP DDB and Publicis London.
