“Now is the perfect time to establish a permanent presence in the region, to further strengthen our roots there and continue to provide our South-East Asian clients with world-class service,” said founder and chief executive officer Gary Lin.
Glispa also has an office in Beijing to serve the Chinese market, as well as Bangalore in India.

He will use his indepth knowledge in mobile marketing to serve mature markets such as Singapore, hypergrowth m-commerce markets such as Indonesia, as well as the emerging mobile markets such as the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam, Glispa said.
“South-East Asia is the next digital frontier with a major behavioural shift to a mobile-first society, and Glispa is well positioned to help brands and app developers capitalise on this phenomenal growth,” said Nguyen.
“With mobile advertising set to grow to half of all digital advertising by 2020, I’m thrilled to join Glispa to lead this growth regionally,” he added.
