PATTAYA – ADFEST has appointed Kitty Lun as its next Jury President overseeing the Interactive Lotus and Mobile Lotus jury at ADFEST 2018.
Lun is Head of Creative Shop for Facebook, Greater China – a role she has held since early 2016.
“I am happy and honored to accept the invitation. ADFEST is a festival that supports creative talent in our region and encourages innovation. I’m looking forward to seeing the best interactive ideas being produced,” says Lun, whose career began at Leo Burnett in Hong Kong as a copywriter, quickly climbing the ranks to become a Creative Director eight years later.
Prior to joining Facebook, Lun was Chairman and CEO of Lowe Worldwide China, based in Shanghai, a role she took after joining Euro RSCG Partnership Hong Kong as Managing Director and Chief Creative Officer in 1997.
Lun has been fascinated by digital trends since 2000, when she joined miclub.com, an Asian women’s portal, as Chief Executive Officer. Having worked for many top agencies around Asia, she is now based in Hong Kong, working with agencies to implement eye-catching Facebook campaigns across Greater China.
Jimmy Lam, President of ADFEST, says: “Kitty is a formidable creative force to be reckoned with, and her experience at Facebook over the past two years makes her the ideal person to lead our Interactive and Mobile Lotus jury at ADFEST 2018.”
