The IAB Southeast Asia and India (IAB SEA+India) has announced its Regional Board concluding the trade association’s 2020 election process with Publishers, Creative and Media Agencies, Platforms – and for the first time home grown super apps – elected to the Regional Board, ensuring the service side of the digital ecosystem is comprehensively represented.

IAB SEA+India Regional CEO Miranda Dimopoulos shared “It is our priority to have as many profiles and perspectives as possible on our Regional Board. We achieved 50 percent gender representation across all of our initiatives in 2019 and surpassing this for our 2020 Regional Board reflects our Membership feel the same.”

In the first IAB SEA+India Regional Board Meeting in April 2020, Rose Huskey, Wavemaker and Justin Peyton, Wunderman Thompson were selected as Co-Chairs of the organisation for a 12 month term.

Dimopoulos added “All Regional Board Members’ contributions are measured on a performance matrix. Rose and Justin topped this in 2019 and as an agnostic trade association, we take the same unbiased view on contributions.  We have implemented bi monthly measures to ensure there is no business bias towards WPP by having both our Co-Chairs come from the network. Our priority is always to have the best, and most committed, industry representatives and Rose and Justin are exemplary examples of these.”

Huskey said “The IAB SEA+India mission to grow investment, and inclusivity, across Southeast Asia and India resonates strongly with me. Our Regional Board this year can only continue to lead the way in how to excel here, no matter the economic climate. The IAB SEA+India’s swift adjustment to anticipate and meet the new needs of the industry is why I didn’t hesitate to be more involved with the Executive Committee.”

Peyton adds “I wholeheartedly agree with Rose; we are all adjusting to what will be the next normal and the IAB SEA+India plays a pivotal role in keeping the industry informed, connected and to recuperate as much as possible as fast as possible. I’ve found being on the Regional Board a highlight in the past three years and look forward to being even more engaged in 2020.  Miranda and her team have done a stellar job of pivoting quickly to ensure initiatives are as unaffected as possible and continue to excel with their level of commitment and service.”
