In a bid to accelerate growth and double down on client services, Media.Monks has hired ad veteran Jessica Davey as SVP of Client Services, APAC.
Formerly at McCann Worldgroup as the Chief Marketing Officer and Director of Creative Excellence for Asia-Pacific based in Singapore, Davey was overseeing the growth and development of 11 markets. Her priorities at Media.Monks will be using her domain expertise and salesmanship to deepen and broaden client engagement, continuing to foster the creative ambitions and culture as well as maintaining solutions’ excellence.
Davey has nearly two decades of experience under her belt working with the world’s leading companies, including Coca-Cola, Unilever, Heineken, Mondelēz, Reckitt, Philips, L’Oreal, Mastercard and Mars.
Davey has led integrated teams that span advertising, digital, production, PR and shopper marketing and prides herself on working closely with clients to unlock significant commercial scale. Her appointment comes at a time when Media.Monks is making significant investment in non-traditional talent.
A zealous advocate for the power of creativity and the cultural impact of brands, Davey has worked across multiple award-winning campaigns for brands like Dove, Coca-Cola, Snickers and Heineken. She is a frequent public speaker at industry events, stripping the veneer of comforting allusion and focusing on the importance of diversity and representation in the creative industry.
“I have always found the Media.Monks approach compelling: data-driven digital solutions underpinned by creative production. But what I am most excited about is the team’s energy and ambition to just keep doing better and smarter work all the time. I love that approach of constant evolution and optimisation in action, especially as clients look for new ways to engage and grow”, says Davey.
“A formidable force to reckon with, Jessica’s mastery of integrated capabilities, strong and enduring client relationships, regional and global expertise across industry verticals and stereotype-busting determination makes her the ideal leader to bring our client servicing team to the next level…She joins us at an exciting time of growth”, says Michel de Rijk, CEO APAC of S4 Capital Group.
