Y&R Singapore Welcomes A Local Hero Back

Y&R Singapore has announced the return of creative director Kirsten Ackland, along with team-members and clients from boutique agency The Local.

Acclaimed creative Ackland returns to Y&R after four years as co-founder of The Local, which was built on the premise that no-one understands Singapore better than its people.

Melvin Kuek, managing director Y&R Singapore commented, “We are delighted that Kirsten and her energetic team have joined us to further strengthen Y&R’s burgeoning talent pool.”

“Together with newly-appointed chief creative officer Komal Sonal Bedi, planning director Yousuf Rangoonwala and Y&R Labstore we have added depth and expertise to every department in the agency, to better service existing and new clients, including retail giants Al Futtaim Group, Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen, Lend Lease and Shiseido,” he added.

“It's great to be returning to the Y&R family and to continue The Local’s essence and winning mentality within Y&R's global boutique ethos - the strength of a global network combined with remarkable in-depth local understanding,” added Kirsten Ackland.
