Dentsu Aegis Network Hong Kong Streamlines Its Structure For Greater Client Centricity
Dentsu Aegis Network Hong Kong launches a new business model to deliver greater simplification and stronger integration. This new model streamlines the network’s offering into Creative and Media Lines of Business.
This is part of the group’s ongoing evolution to be integrated by design. It provides clarity of the network's capabilities organised into two lines of business. Clients are offered with an easier access to an end to end services based on their needs.
This strategy presents a new vision and holistic value proposition in the industry. It is a powerful statement of how the network is going forward, in delivering innovative solutions across a broad spectrum of consumer journey.
The Creative Line of Business focuses on delivering brand and experience transformation. Isobar is positioned as the Global Experience Agency while the newly launched dentsumcgarrybowen is positioned as the Global Creative Agency.
David Jessop steps up to become the CEO of Isobar Hong Kong, leading the network’s experience expertise to design frictionless commerce solutions across platforms and systems. He will co-chair the Creative Line of Business alongside with Simone Tam, the CEO of dentsumcgarrybowen group Hong Kong.
The Media Line of Business brings together Carat, dentsu X, Vizeum, iProspect and Amnet - the network’s trading and investment arm. Lawrence Yang plays a dual leadership role as the CEO of Media Line of Business, and the CEO of iProspect Hong Kong. He will lead the media brands to deliver data-driven and transaction-enabled media solutions.
David Jessop, Creative Co-Chair & CEO of Isobar Hong Kong said, “This new model allows us to take the relationships we have to a deeper level. It expands the canvas of creativity with data-led insights and tech-enabled experience design. A combined talent with an aligned vision to win in the experience economy. We look forward to entering this new journey with our clients and partners.”

As a network, we are well down the path and I am thrilled to be part of this journey with such strong leadership team.” Said Lawrence Yang, CEO Media Lines of Business & iProspect Hong Kong.
