Singapore – Stagwell, the global digital-first marketing and communications network based in the United States, has opened its new regional headquarters in Singapore to further drive its growth across APAC. 

The new Singapore office comes as Stagwell scales its blend of transformative creative and connected solutions to brands in key growth markets worldwide. It will serve as a key geographic hub to anchor the network’s international client engagements and connect local teams with Stagwell’s platform of digital marketing services. 

Following the opening of the new office, Stagwell has tapped Randy Duax, the senior vice president for executive talent, to lead APAC operations as the managing director. Duax will directly report to Mark Penn, the CEO and chairman, and will be leading the marketing talent and digital services in Singapore and APAC, serving as a direct line to global leadership. 

Furthermore, Duax will be collaborating closely with Stagwell’s multiple agencies in the region, to expand the roster of Global Affiliates, including Beyond Media Group and Metric Design Studio. 

Commenting on the expansion, Duax said that he is proud to contribute to the efforts in bringing the creativity, strategic, and digital expertise of Stagwell to APAC.

“I have made some of my greatest business partners – and even greater friends – in Singapore, and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to build out Stagwell’s anchor in this high-growth region,” added Duax.

Meanwhile, Penn said, “Singapore is the right location for Stagwell’s regional headquarters and I’m excited for the growth of our network throughout Asia-Pacific. Randy’s experience and long-term engagements in Singapore will serve our network well.”
