The World: Shanghai - Lun joins Lowe as chairman and chief executive

Kitty Lun, the former Arnold Worldwide general manager and executive creative director, has been hired as the chairman and chief executive of Lowe China.

Lun has worked for Arnold since 2001 and was previously the agency's director of brand architecture for Asia-Pacific.

She will replace David Taylor, who will take on a regional IPG role next year, having spent much of his tenure dividing his time between Lowe China and Daiko Japan. Taylor has resigned from Daiko's board but will continue to work with the company on an advisory basis.
