He has also been named “Creative Person of the Year” by the Taipei Association of Advertising Agencies (TAAA).

“It’s been ten years since I got to know Shih-Yen.

I’m confident that with Shih Yen, BBDO Taiwan will shine even brighter in the years to come. Exciting times ahead for sure,” said Wai Foong Leong, Chairman and CCO of BBDO Greater China.

“It’s an honor to join BBDO. I can see there is a commitment to creativity, as well as a passion for creating creative work that not only enhances the brand image but also increases sales and revenue for the client. As a final say, for now, I’d like to borrow the term “brainstorm” from BBDO co-founder Alex Faickney Osborn – I look forward to storming creative problems with the team and creating more amazing work that will truly blow clients away,” said Shih Yen.
