WPP has announced Randy Duax as its new talent director for APAC.

In his new role, Duax will be moving to Singapore from New York, where he is currently WPP's vice president of executive recruitment.

From 1 October, Duax will be responsible for the company's senior talent acquisition and management, and will oversee recruitment teams in Singapore, Shanghai, Sydney, and Tokyo.

Duax said he is looking forward "to the opportunity to help build upon the amazing work that our teams have been doing in Asia".

He will be replacing Jean-Michel Wu, who is leaving WPP after 10 years.

"We would like to thank Jean-Michel for his strong contributions to establishing WPP’s talent offering across the region, and developing our teams across the region. We wish him well in his future endeavors," Frances Illingworth, WPP’s global recruitment director, said.
