Cunnington said: “Having worked at Vizeum I was aware of its innovative and entrepreneurial culture, so I was delighted to take on the role of strategy lead for APAC.

“During my time at Jumptank we constantly pushed the boundaries by combining technology, strategy and creativity to drive our clients businesses. I’m looking forward to building strong connections between people and brands for our clients, and being part of Vizeum’s growth into a key player in the region.”

Cunnington has 16 years’ experience in media, having held planning roles for media agency MEC, Starcom and Vizeum’s sibling agency Carat. He moved into strategy in 2006 as a communications strategist for Naked Communications.

Kristian Barnes CEO Vizeum Asia Pacific said: “It’s great to add such strong talent to our rapidly expanding regional team supporting Vizeum’s growth across Asia Pacific. Ben understands clients’ business drivers, so coupled with his technology, strategy and creative credentials, he is the perfect fit to help deliver the innovative business solutions our clients want.”
