Chief Commercial Officer, Asia Pacific / J. Walter Thompson Asia Pacific
Conrad's over 20 years of marketing and advertising experience with Ogilvy & Mather, HSBC and JWT provide him with strategic marketing expertise across a wide spectrum of industries in Asia-Pacific.
First joined JWT in 1989, Conrad became Managing Director of its Hong Kong & South China division in 1997 and led the company through a critical transition from a leading mass media advertising agency to a total brand communications company. Under his leadership, JWT ranked No.1 for six consecutive years, serving major blue chip multinationals and local clients alike.
In 2000, Conrad made an entrepreneurial move and founded Market Catalyst. Shaping the company from the ground up into Hong Kong’s largest independent local agency within four short years, he continued his leadership as it subsequently became part of WPP in 2004.
His career at WPP progressed to yet another new stage as he re-joined JWT as the Chief Commercial Officer, Asia Pacific in 2013, where he also oversees strategic business setup to serve key banking and real estates clients for the company.
