Hot on the heels of MSQ's acquisition of Elmwood and the subsequent merger of the agency with Holmes & Marchant, the international marketing group has hired Caroline So as Managing Director for H&M's Shanghai studio.

Along with the agency's other Managing Directors in London, New York and Singapore, she will also build upon MSQ’s digital and tech capabilities, bringing greater insight and channel-specific expertise to meet the needs of today’s leading brands in Asia.

So said: “It is an exciting time for MSQ. I’m thrilled to be part of the leadership team at H&M, building MSQ’s multi-disciplinary offering beyond branding and design to create truly integrated creative solutions for marketers."

Paul Galesloot, CEO of Holmes & Marchant, says: “We couldn’t be happier to welcome Caroline into our recently enlarged family. Digital technologies and drive for customer-centricity have completely transformed the FMCG industry, especially in China. By combining our strengths in brand design with data, digital and tech, we aim to help brands solve these challenges - and Caroline’s experience in digital, data-driven marketing, content and e-commerce will be aa real asset here."
