SINGAPORE — Redhill, the Singapore-headquartered full-service global communications agency, has appointed Manisha Seewal as its President. In this role, Manisha will work closely with Redhill’s management team to oversee and enhance the agency’s business and operational functions as the company seeks to accelerate its growth sustainably to becomea holistic and integrated communications agency.

Manisha first joined Redhill as a senior advisor in November 2022, bringing over two decades of senior leadership expertise. Throughout her career, she has demonstrated acute industry expertise in marketing, digital transformation, and market expansion. This includes leading various “Singapore’s first” digital transformation projects, such as the country’s first “Netflix for Cars” subscription-based program and first life insurance chatbot. She was also listed among World’s Top 100 In-House Communicators and the 100 Most Influential Global Marketing Leaders.

“Having worked with Manisha for the past months, I’m happy to welcome her into her new role as President. Especially during our critical growth juncture, I’m confident that she will further strengthen Redhill’s capabilities in the long term,” said Jacob Puthenparambil, Founder and CEO of Redhill.


Before joining Redhill, Manisha was Chief Marketing Officer of Gumtree, Carsguide, and Autotrader, where she spearheaded the three brands’ digital transformation of their marketing and editorial functions in Australia. Before that, she was the first Group Chief Marketing Officer of Southeast Asian car marketplace Carro – where she scaled the company’s marketing team from just three people to over 70-strong across Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, and Malaysia. While at Carro, Manisha concurrently served as the Chief Executive Officer of, Indonesia’s third-largest e-classified marketplace acquired by Carro. Before joining the startup world, Manisha was heading marketing for financial institutions like Tokio Marine, HSBC, and AVIVA.

Manisha’s new appointment also coincides with Redhill’s rapid growth. The agency officially entered three new markets recently: the Middle East, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Building on its expanding global footprint, the agency launched its creative arm, Redhill Studio. It later merged its existing design and content capabilities with those of VS Story, a Singapore-based award-winning storytelling company that Redhill acquired last year.

“With its 200-person formidable team and a vast global presence, Redhill is the world’s second fastest growing PR agency ready for the next growth stage. It is time we connect our new business acquisitions with a strategic lens to unleash Redhill’s potential as a full-stack communications agency. I’m delighted to be a part of this journey, and I look forward to what comes next for the agency’s continued success,” said Manisha.

Further accelerating its growth, Redhill also recently entered strategic partnerships with Sri Lanka-based PR Wire and Singapore-based Aroca Consulting Group (ACG)1 to respectively boost its market presence and competencies in Sri Lanka, as well as its general service offerings in government relations and public affairs.

Extending its growth momentum from 2022 to 2023, Redhill was listed as one of Singapore’s fastest-growing companies2 by the Straits Times for its third consecutive year. The company also recently achieved ranking Number 124 in the Global Top 250 PR Agency Ranking 2023 by PRovoke Media – the first Singaporean firm to ever qualify for listing in the rankings.3 The company also came second in PRovoke Media’s Fast Movers category in its Global PR Agency Rankings 2023, being the only Asia-headquartered agency to make it to the list’s Top 10.4 Additionally, the agency illustrated its continued success in client activities by gathering three wins in the most recent PRCA APAC Awards.
