The World: Singapore - Thomas Neo to quit Publicis after 12 years' service

Thomas Neo, the chief executive of Publicis Singapore, is leaving the agency after more than a decade with the group.

Neo has worked with Publicis since its inception in Asia in 1997, becoming the chief executive of the Singapore office in February 2006 following the retirement of Mike Stepan.

The agency has said it will conduct a review of the Singapore chief executive position over the next few months, before making an announcement later in the year.

Matt Godfrey, the chief executive of Publicis Asia, said: "Thomas has been of enormous help to me and I owe him a great deal of thanks and respect."
