George Nguyen, Group Strategy Director at StrawberryFrog, has been poached by TBWA. George spent just 365 days in the pond’s New York office. Before that, he worked beneath Domenico Vitale at Lowe New York. Nguyen has been tapped to head up TBWA Vietnam’s office as managing director. TBWA is totally focused on emerging markets these days considering the U.S. is currently a big, fat disaster. Nguyen will report to Ian Thubron, CEO of TBWA Hong Kong.
TBWA Group has also recently acquired Vietnam agency, BizSolutions along with its 120 employees in an effort to make an impact on the market. The shop has been rebranded Biz Tequila and falls beneath Nguyen’s direction. Yeah. So. Good luck with that George.
Since, George’s job is now open at the New York office of Da Frog… Hey planners, might want to dust off those resumes, yeah?
