Video: The next 1 bn ppl joining social are going to come from mobile: Cheuk Chiang

Cheuk Chiang, CEO, Asia Pacific of Omnicom Media Group, talking about the growing importance of mobile as a medium, says, “Mobile is an integral part of the agency’s communication plans and strategy in connecting with consumers, and an increasingly influential touch-point.”

In an exclusive video interview with exchange4media, Chiang talks passionately about how mobile will change the face of communications as we know it today. He shared that the agency is hugely focussing on further developing its capabilities in this space.

Omnicom Media Group in India has won a slew of awards this year, starting with the ‘Missed Call’ mobile campaign for Hindustan Unilever’s  Active Wheel, at the Festival of Media (Global and Asia), followed by numerous wins at Smarties, both in APAC and India.

The agency is one of the earlier believers and investors in the mobile medium. It has seen the evolution of the medium and continues to tap into the immense potential of mobile for its clients.

“We are in an economy now where things are more digitalised and socialised. In the new world, there are 1.3 billion social networkers. What is being predicted is that the next 1 billion people jumping on to this space are going to come from mobile,” said Chiang.

Chiang also highlighted the growing relevance of this medium in India, which has an internet penetration of approximately 11.4 per cent and a mobile penetration estimated to be around 51 per cent, with approximately 40 per cent of people with mobile phones accessing the internet.
 
“We are going to see a leap frog in communication with consumers from the way we currently know it,” he stated.

Chiang joined Omnicom Media Group as CEO for PHD for the Asia Pacific region in 2008. In 2011, he was appointed to globally head LIGHT, the Group’s creativity council. He has also been a judge at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity twice.

With over 22 years of rich experience across high profile brands such as Coca-Cola, Heineken, Heinz, and Unilever, Chiang brings a new dynamism and energy to his role as APAC CEO of Omnicom Media Group.
