Joshua Lee, group managing director of DDB Group Singapore is exiting his role after over 12 years with the company. Lee joined DDB Group Singapore as account manager for Tribal Worldwide Singapore in 2010. He has held the managing director role since 2017.

During his time with the agency, he worked with several notable clients such as BMW, Burger King, DBS/POSB, Heineken, Manulife, Viu, Volkswagen, along with a slate of government clients. Many of these brands had notable wins at MARKETING-INTERACTIVE’s MARKies and Marketing Excellence awards.

Lee was also recently on the winning DDB team that won “Overall Creative Ideas MARKies” five years in a row from 2018 to 2022.

In a statement to MARKETING-INTERACTIVE, Jeff Cheong, CEO at DDB Group Singapore said, “I’ve worked with Josh for the past 12 years, starting from when he first joined us to lead the DBS business. During that time, he has gone from strength to strength, rising through the ranks to become a street-smart and agile group leader. I wish him all the best and look forward to watching his new season unfold.”

Lee added that joining the DDB/Tribal team 12 years ago was the best choice he has made in his career. “I’m thankful and grateful for working alongside my bosses [Cheong], David Tang and Neil Johnson. I count myself fortunate to have worked with many other talented and nice people in the DDB family who go out of their way with their unwavering never-say-die spirit despite the relentless challenges that we face in the ever-changing media landscape. I wish the very best to the whole of DDB Group,” he added.

Lee declined to comment on his next chapter at the time of writing.
