Names Kunal Sinha as Chairman, Asia-Pacific
SHANGHAI, 11-8-2014 — /EuropaWire/ — The Futures Company is pleased to announce the opening of an office in Shanghai, expanding its Asia-Pacific operation following the successful launch of a Singapore office in 2013.
The Futures Company is a strategic insight and planning consultancy with offices in North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia-Pacific. Through subscription and consulting services, The Futures Company helps clients to build more powerful connections with people and culture and to unlock new sources of growth. The Futures Company is part of Kantar, WPP’s research and consulting division.
Kunal Sinha, formerly Ogilvy & Mather’s Chief Knowledge Officer for China and Cultural Insights Director for Asia Pacific, will lead The Futures Company in China. Sinha will also take up the role of Chairman, Asia-Pacific, working closely with Singapore-based Stephane Alpern, Managing Director for Asia-Pacific, as they develop the business in the region.
Sinha is an acclaimed strategist, researcher and thought leader with almost 10 years experience in China and 25 years across the region. He has written several books, won multiple awards, regularly speaks at top business schools and has worked with corporate, non-profit and government clients in Asia, Europe and North America.
Will Galgey, Global CEO of The Futures Company, comments, “We are delighted to be opening an office in China to support the continued growth of our business in Asia-Pacific. We have been working with clients in China for a number of years from our Singapore and global offices. We’ll now be able to better support those clients and develop new client relationships through Kunal and the outstanding team he has assembled.”
Kunal Sinha comments, “I believe that the timing for the launch of The Futures Company in China is absolutely right. Growth has slowed, competition has intensified, there is greater scrutiny of corporations from people and the government alike, and power has shifted to the consumer. It is really hard for business leaders to find the answers to their greatest challenges, and we believe the combination of The Futures Company’s global resources and my team’s deep cultural, consumer and business expertise in China will help clients to unlock new sources of growth.”
