TotallyAwesome provides a forum for kids, teens and families to safely interact with brands across thousands of apps, games and websites, with more than 300 million monthly users across APAC.

“Having worked for large holding groups, the opportunity to assist TotallyAwesome is very attractive because of the unusual nature of the business. As a father of young children, I am naturally concerned about the nature of engagement our kids will have on the internet,” Wu said, “so I am excited to be helping Will and the whole team with building a high-performance culture centred around a real purpose.”

Wu is the third senior executive to join TotallyAwesome in the past three week after former managing partner of WPP media agency IKON, James Sawyer joined TotallyAwesome as managing director across the Australian and New Zealand markets in late March.
