ADFEST is pleased to announce that Victor Manggunio, Chief Creative Officer of Leo Burnett China, based in Shanghai, is joining the festival as Jury President, Media Lotus & Effective Lotus.
“It's a great honor to accept this invitation and play a role in judging the Media Lotus and Effective Lotus winners – two categories that require the right balance between creative and strategic thinking. I’m really looking forward to seeing which brands and agencies win this year,” says Manggunio, who has worked in the region for 22 years and joined Leo Burnett China as Chief Creative Officer in 2015.
Manggunio’s experience is uniquely eclectic – he has experience across retail advertising, digital and social; he’s worked above and below the line; and he even ran his own production company for three years as a Director.
Jimmy Lam, President of ADFEST says: “Victor brings to the table a complete understanding of the creative process from strategy to ideation and production acumen. His knowledge will be invaluable in leading this year’s Media Lotus and Effective Lotus jury and we’re very pleased he has agreed to be part of ADFEST 2017.”
Prior to joining Leo Burnett China, which operates in Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou, Manggunio ran his own digital and film production company and directed commercials broadcast in both traditional and digital platforms across Asia. He then returned to the Leo Burnett network having previously worked at the agency’s Hong Kong agency for 10 years.
ADFEST 2017 will take place at the Royal Cliff Hotels Group in Pattaya, Thailand from Wednesday 22nd to Saturday 25th March.
