Wavemaker promotes Smith Bhatt and Shamsul Islam, amplifying its ecommerce and precision offerings in Asia-Pacific

Wavemaker Asia-Pacific have today announced the promotion of Shamsul Islam to Head of Precision, and Smith Bhatt to Head of Ecommerce, both reporting into Rose Huskey, Chief Client Officer.

In his new role as a senior leader within the Wavemaker Asia-Pacific consultancy hub, Shamsul will be chief advocate and expert in performance media, analytics, data & technology. He will also be responsible for defining, developing, and driving best in class Precision strategy and management, through Wavemaker and our clients’ business.

Shamsul remarked “The digital ecosystem is changing faster than ever before, impacting not only media, but also how people live, behave and think. The most exciting part of my new role will be to stay ahead of these changes and translate them to growth opportunities for our clients, and for our people. I am very fortunate to be at a place where we have amazing brands that are eager to embrace change together, as well as Wavemakers who are always excited to come in every day and try something new. I am thankful & humbled by the opportunity, and excited to hit the ground running!”

Smith was previously Regional Digital & Ecommerce Lead for clients across South East Asia, with a well-established record of accomplishment in building and leading Regional Ecommerce and Digital capabilities in the region. He has extensive experience working and managing diverse categories and large clients across the ecommerce, digital & performance spaces.

Smith commented “I am excited to take up my new role and bring a fresh perspective to the ever-changing Ecommerce landscape. At Wavemaker, we strongly believe in driving growth for our clients (category leaders, new economy, all of them!) by driving positive provocation. My vision is to grow our specialized Commerce offering that contributes to solving the business challenges of our clients instead of their isolated media/marketplace/product/retail challenges.”

I am excited and confident that the duo will bring fresh and innovative approaches in all the work they do as we continue building a strong team of positively provocative future leaders and mentors.”
