Shanghai (PRWEB) July 27, 2016
Digital Luxury Group (http://www.digitalluxurygroup.com), the leading independent digital agency specialized in luxury, today announced the appointment of Pablo Mauron as Partner and Managing Director of DLG China, the organization’s Shanghai-based operation.
Immediately prior to being promoted, Mauron was the General Manager of DLG China. In his new role, Mauron will continue his oversight of the Chinese business and have increased strategic responsibilities, working with CEO, David Sadigh, and the Board on strategic initiatives and partnerships. In addition, Mauron will take responsibility for Luxury Society’s development in China.
The digital environment in China is unlike any other. With one of the largest user bases in the world, innovation comes fast. China is not only the first market for e-commerce sales and the second-largest luxury market in the world, it is also the second-largest market for advertising spend. China represents 50% of Asia Pacific’s advertising spend in digital and the market is also leading the way in terms of digital innovation with the rise of companies like WeChat. It’s within this context that DLG China has excelled.
“DLG China has been growing at a fast pace and is on track to generate +85% topline growth, significantly increasing the total net revenues this year,” said Sadigh. “Under Pablo’s outstanding leadership, Digital Luxury Group has attracted many of the best digital luxury talents in China, expanded to a new office, and has been selected as a key social media partner by brands such as Montblanc, Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, Leica, Dior, Swarovski, and many others.”
Before taking the reins at DLG China in 2012, Mauron held management roles at Digital Luxury Group’s Geneva office, leading the agency’s search engine and display advertising services. “It has been an incredible journey so far, and the potential is still ahead as luxury and premium brands invest more and more in Mainland China, looking for creative and innovative social media solutions that target both the wealthy and the booming middle class in China but also abroad as the Mainland travelers are more strategic than ever,” commented Mauron. “We are already the social media services leader of the luxury and prestige segment in China, we are now looking at doing the same for online CRM and e-commerce.”
This year, DLG China is hosting the 2nd Luxury Society Keynote in China, the first Shanghai-based conference dedicated to luxury professionals. Past Luxury Society Keynote event speakers include Net-a-Porter, Alibaba, Farfetch and MCM and partners which include Google, Baidu, KPMG, Bloomberg, Criteo, and Teads, amongst others.
