The World: Hong Kong - Hwang named as creative head at TBWA\China

TBWA\China has appointed Chien Hwang (pictured) to the position of executive creative director of its Beijing office. He replaces Derrick Ho, who has relocated to TBWA's Guangzhou office to take on creative duties for Nissan.

Hwang joins from Y&R New York, where he worked on accounts including Diet Dr Pepper, Texaco and Toys R Us. He was previously a creative director at BBDO New York.

Gavin Heron, the TBWA\China group chief executive, said: "Chien stood out among a number of very good candidates. His global experience in New York and his enthusiasm for China and the TBWA brand really appealed."
