Rupert England Leaves ECD Position at FCB Kuala Lumpur

Creative 185 Add to collection

After a year in Malaysia, England decides to return home to Singapore

 Rupert England Leaves ECD Position at FCB Kuala Lumpur

After a year as group executive creative director of FCB Kuala Lumpur, Rupert England will be heading back to Singapore where he will consult and pursue personal creative projects from June onwards. 

England was group executive creative director at FCB Kuala Lumpur since March 2013, where he managed three separate creative departments – both traditional and digital  – comprising more than 40 creative and production staff. 

FCB Kuala Lumpur’s clients included Mondelez, Nivea, CIMB Bank, Telekom Malaysia, Celcom, Wipro Unza, PIDM, Daum and Nissan. 

He worked in Singapore previously – for four years from 2007 to 2011 – as a regional creative director at Lowe and a creative director at TBWA. 

Commenting on the move back to Singapore, England says: "I'm proud of what we achieved at FCB Kuala Lumpur. For the first time in a few years, the agency won several pitches. We also won awards at the Kancils, the local Malaysian show. The agency is well-positioned for success and I wish the team all the best.”

“In the end, it was more a personal decision than a professional one. After a year in Malaysia, I realised that Singapore is home."

Rupert England will be a judge for the finals category and a speaker at the upcoming AD STARS 2014 in Busan, South Korea, this August.
