June 25, 2018
Appointment of a Regional Director
Valtech, the global digital agency focused on business transformation, has promoted its Singapore and China Managing Director, Henri Petitet, to the newly created role of Regional Director Asia-Pacific, in a move that signals their commitment to growth and expansion in the region.
Henri Petitet is a veteran of the digital industry and has been with Valtech for more than 24 years, including five years as the Sales Director of Valtech France before moving to Singapore in 2014 to head up Valtech’s Singapore and China operations.
Valtech has achieved significant growth in Asia over the past few years, with more than 550 full-time employees in offices across Singapore, China, India and Australia. The appointment of Henri Petitet as Regional Director underpins the company’s desire to continue to drive its expansion in the region.
Commenting on his new role, Henri Petitet said, “Whilst we have achieved success in APAC there are still many opportunities across the region. In my new role my focus will be on leveraging all the talents from our Asia-Pacific countries, as from the wider group, to deliver first in class digital experiences for our clients and maximize all of the market opportunities.”
With expertise in technology, marketing and experience design, Valtech addresses transformational business challenges for clients, from consulting to service design, multichannel digital platform building and roll-outs, and marketing services. In APAC Valtech works with global clients such as L’Oreal, Danone, Samsung and Kellogg’s, as well as local companies Ruralco, TAL and FEH, among others.
“A strong presence in Asia-Pacific is key in our overall business strategy,” said Olivier Padiou, Group Global COO, Valtech. “We have many global clients asking us to have an even stronger presence and a solid understanding of the local markets in Asia, and conversely we have many existing and potential clients from Asia looking for a global digital partner to help them grow and optimize performance globally. Therefore, strengthening our business operations in this market is a strategic imperative.”
