PHD Hong Kong has promoted Clement Chung from general manager to managing director as Ray Wong steps down from his CEO role on 29 November.

Chung has been with Omnicom Group for over two decades, and has worked with Wong in Hong Kong since the office was established.

“In this industry, 11 years of service with a network—and 25 with one group—speaks volumes about the unique culture and spirit of camaraderie within the group,” Wong said.

Wong joined Omnicom Group in 1990, firstly working at DDB, where he ran a planning team. In 1995, he moved to Guangzhou to head up the DYR Guangzhou media department. Twenty years ago, Wong was one of the founding members of OMD’s Hong Kong operations.

Nine years later in 2006, he launched PHD Hong Kong, the agency’s first APAC office. He became CEO in 2010.
