Born in Hong Kong. Educated in the UK. Long-time veteran of both the US and Chinese markets.
Simone Tam started her career in 1993 and has an enviable track-record - she was recognized as one of the top five agency heads by Campaign magazine in 2012 and 2013
Guiding her to the top has been the simple belief that an amazing agency culture yields the best, most effective client solutions.
Starting at Bozell, (later FCB), Simone learned quickly and rose swiftly through the ranks as a result, becoming Regional Account Director of the Bausch & Lomb and Clairol Hair Care accounts across Asia Pacific. In 1999, she made another of her many impressive career leaps taking the Client Services Director position at FCB Shanghai. Because of her effectiveness in developing long-lasting, highly rewarding client relationships, Simone transferred to FCB San Francisco, where she worked for four years, before returning to her native China as General Manager FCB Hong Kong. After 17 years, Simone said goodbye to FCB and joined DDB in 2010. Not long after, she became CEO and took the helm of both DDB Hong Kong and Guangzhou.
Now, in 2016, we are fortunate to add Simone and her immeasurable talent to our roster as CEO of mcgarrybowen Greater China. We couldn't be more excited.
A great agency culture begins with a great leader. In Simone, we're certain we found one of the greatest.
