Commenting on the win, Darien Mah, CEO of FOREFRONT International, said: “It is a truly humbling experience for us and it has validated our initial intent of attracting the younger creative generations to be interested in being a part of us and to know more about our culture that we have here at FOREFRONT.”
“We employ such innovative hiring strategy in line with our efforts to create a work environment that is quintessentially cosmopolitan; and we constantly look to acquire talents from a wide variety of specialisation and cultural backgrounds; which also prompted us to set up our London office just recently.”
“We strongly believe that our people are our most important resources, and we use many creative ways to develop, grow and help them grow. We don’t have a factory or a formula – we have people,” Mah added.
“Being in the business for over a decade helped us to prove ourselves to be more than just a creative agency. We are a learning organisation that strives to grow with our team members and even clients, many of whom share similar causes and visions.”
