Grey Group Singapore has promoted Subbaraju Alluri to area director and CEO of Grey Group Singapore and Grey Group Thailand.

Alluri began his career in advertising as a management trainee in DDB Chennai. After stints at JWT and Rapp Collins, he joined Grey Group Indonesia, before moving over to Grey Group Singapore’s local operations in 2005.

“Raju’s aptitude and contribution has been invaluable. I am sure with his leadership and vision, he will transform Grey Group Thailand into becoming the agency of choice,” said Nirvik Singh, chairman & CEO of Grey Group Asia Pacific.

Transforming the agency into the Singapore’s fastest-growing creative outfit within a year, Alluri had lead the team to win major accounts such as Sentosa and Ministry of Manpower, among others.

“It is truly an honour to be given the opportunity to lead the Thailand team, as well. I am looking forward to taking the agency to new and greater heights,” said Alluri.
