Publicis Groupe’s Chief Executive Officer for APAC, Jane Lin-Baden, said, “Adobe has a strong vision for fuelling growth in this region and we’re building a bespoke team to support this. Led by Minsun Collier, a true media evangelist who helps businesses to navigate the changing media landscape and set them up for success, we are thrilled to be welcoming Adobe to our portfolio of flagship brands in APAC.”
Publicis Groupe’s Chief Executive Officer for Japan, Gareth Mulryan, added, “With his entrepreneurial spirit, Matthew has the smarts and curiosity we need to lead Adobe in Japan, their second largest global market. He’ll work closely with Publicis global on all levels to help drive growth in a key market. It’s an exciting time for Adobe in Japan and we’re honored to be part of their journey here.”
Minsun is an established senior leader, client consultant, and media specialist with experience in accelerating business growth through the application of digital media, data, and technology. Prior to joining Publicis Groupe, she worked in media agencies in key roles including National Head of Digital and National Head of Data & Technology Acceleration.
Meanwhile, Matthew is an experienced media planning and investment professional, having developed media models for leading global businesses that drive deeper customer relationships, brand reputation, and profit.

The opportunity to lead an incredibly talented group of people, collaborate with the brilliant marketing minds at Adobe and find new and compelling ways to tell the brand’s story across the region is truly special.”
