AMES 2016 NAMES FIRST TWO JURY PRESIDENTS

Thursday 11 February, 2016

The Asian Marketing Effectiveness & Strategy Conference & Awards (AMES) which will be held on 31 May 2016 in Singapore has announced the first two presidents.
 
Rachelle Berges, Head of Media and Connections, Integrated Marketing Communications at ‎Johnson & Johnson, will lead the Media Strategy jury. Prior to joining Johnson & Johnson Asia Pacific in early 2015, she spent more than 10 years working agency side on multinational accounts at Ogilvy, Mindshare and Maxus based in Australia, Japan and Hong Kong, and another 9 years in-house leading both Global and Regional Media Strategy and Trading for Motorola.
 
Rachelle says, “I look forward to serving as jury president for the Media Strategy category.  There are many countries in this region leading the world in early adoption of technology and this drives very complex and fast evolving communications and content ecosystems. Planning and optimising effectiveness and focusing on the most meaningful key performance indicators is a complicated business these days and I can’t wait to see the work that represents the best of Asia Pacific.”
