Heng Thang Wei has been promoted to Creative Director of Grey Group Malaysia. Previously Creative Group Head, Mr Thang’s promotion is in recognition of a continued string of successes on both new business and organic growth.
Mr Thang heads up a team whose responsibilities include Telekom Malaysia, Coway, Oppo and Traveloka. He also led the award-winning team for the UNHCR project ‘Finding Home’ which recently won awards at ADFEST, Effies and MDA.
Mr Thang joined Grey in early 2015 as an Art Director and has risen quickly through the ranks. Prior to Grey, he was an Art Director at Leo Burnett KL. Graham Drew, ECD, Grey Group Malaysia commented, “Thang is a huge asset to Grey and a major part of our success during his time here. As well as having one of the best eyes for design I’ve ever come across, he’s a natural leader and somehow has an endless well of enthusiasm. But more than all of that, he really cares about the work and raises the game of everyone he works with.”
On his promotion, Mr Thang said, “I’ve been lucky enough to be involved in some really great campaigns at Grey and this year is shaping up to be the best yet. This promotion is a big step and the support and inspiration I get from the team here makes me excited about what lies ahead.”
