    With its 100-year anniversary this year, WPP-owned Grey Group operates under the banner ‘Famously Effective since 1917’. Its Singapore office works with the likes of Qatar Airways, Duracell and The British Council, and is led by Subbaraju Alluri, the area director and chief executive officer for Grey Group in Singapore and Thailand. With a multitude of specialists under one roof, Grey Group Singapore delivers integrated campaigns across marketing disciplines, including advertising, digital, shopper and experiential.

    To lead its creative department, the agency recently hired chief creative officer Tim Cheng from DDB China, where he held the same role for four years. Cheng believes that fostering creativity is about focusing on the agency’s people. “Every creative person is an individual who finds inspiration in different ways and needs to be enabled in different ways,” he says. “There isn’t a one-size-fits- all method to drive creativity, but sometimes, when very different creative minds come together, magic happens.”
