Speaking about her move to PHD, Donna Arifin said, “PHD’s culture and passion for the business resonates with me and I am excited to join the talented team and lead PHD forward in its upward journey.”
She previously held the post of GM, Sales and Marketing at MSN Indonesia where she was responsible for revenue growth and product adoption. She has worked with brands like Telkomsel, Bakrie Telecom, Microsoft, Intel, and Unilever.
Commenting on the appointment, Susana Tsui, CEO of PHD APAC said, “PHD markets in SEA have been gathering strong momentum over the past few months.

Donna’s appointment is an acknowledgement of PHD’s ongoing commitment to grow our capabilities across all markets in SEA by incorporating a strong leadership team. I am confident that Donna will take PHD to the next level of success in Indonesia.”
Arifin will be reporting directly to Rajat Basra, CEO, Omnicom Media Group Indonesia.

She has a strong track record of delivering effective results and understands the nuances of the market very well.

Arifin replaces Ai Kusumastuti, who moves to Omnicom Media Group Indonesia as Head of Accountability.
“Ai has been brilliant in her former role and she is credited with building PHD’s reputation in the market and putting together a strong talent pool. I am confident that she will value-add to Omnicom Media Group’s operations and further strengthen it,” added Basra.
