Geometry Global Korea has appointed Mike Forster as its Managing Director. Mr Forster was most recently Managing Director at Geometry Global Indonesia, and reports to Diana Cawley, CEO of Geometry Global Asia Pacific.

Mr Forster’s career has mostly centered on building brands and client relationships, with specific focus on brand activation and shopper marketing.

Mr Forster commented, “It’s an exciting time to be in South Korea and I believe the dynamic online to offline offer Geometry Global Korea has, with our focus on driving behavior change, uniquely positions us for success with international clients here.
