Amit Sutha, Named EVP, Exec Director Global Business For Mediabrands Content Studio

He will oversee the development and deployment of specialized content capabilities and teams across Mediabrands’ top markets

Amit Sutha, has been elevated to EVP, Executive Director  Global Business of Interpublic’s new creative practice, Mediabrands Content Studio (MBCS),  effective immediately. Launched in November 2020 by Brendan Gaul, Mediabrands Global  Chief Content Officer, MBCS is designed to network and grow the content capabilities within  Mediabrands’ agencies – UM, Initiative, Reprise, Rapport, MAGNA and Orion around the world. 

In his new role, Sutha will oversee the development and deployment of specialized content  capabilities and teams across Mediabrands’ top markets. Through data-fueled content  experiences, MBCS provides a comprehensive suite of capabilities that link Branded Content,  Performance Content, Advertising Campaigns and Original Content and Entertainment solutions. 

Under Sutha’s leadership as CEO of both Media Agency, UM Malaysia and Creative Agency,  Ensemble Malaysia, the latter of which Sutha nationally founded, the agencies rapidly achieved  global and APAC-region prominence. Among other accolades, UM Malaysia has consistently  been named the country’s best agency by RECMA since 2016 and was named the top office in  the world in 2016 and 2017. UM/Ensemble also won AOY at Campaign Asia’s AOY Awards in  both 2020 and 2019 for media, creative, digital and mobile, and UM Studios won AOY for  Southeast Asia Content Agency. 

“I’m honored to be joining Brendan and the MBCS Global team,” Sutha said. “MBCS’ vision of  integrating new and innovative content models more tightly into client solutions will only make  Mediabrands’ work for clients stronger. I’ve seen time and time again, data-driven content  actually makes our media product better. I look forward to building on MBCS’s early success  and in forging new relationships with our partners globally.” 

“Amit’s track record is unparalleled,” Gaul said of Sutha, who will remain APAC-based. “He  doesn’t look at media and creative separately. He builds both from data, bringing a unique understanding of the client’s high value audiences. He is a champion of great creative that moves  a client’s business and makes one rethink the way of looking at integrated solutions.” Gaul  added.  Sutha will report directly to Gaul.
