The World: Shanghai - Wunderman makes Gibbins MD in restructure

Anchalee Gibbins has been named as the managing director of Wunderman following the company's restructuring of its operations in China.

She replaces the outgoing general manager, Scott Silverman, who has left to pursue other interests.

From 2006, Wunderman's offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Chongping will be run as a national organisation.

The restructure has been instigated in response to the global realignment of the Motorola account and Ford's relocation of its operations to Beijing and Shanghai.

Gibbins will head the joint organisation and will report directly to Chris Jaques, the chief executive of Wunderman Asia and Young & Rubicam.
