At Resn, he won and worked across key clients such as Adidas Originals, Huawei and Ant Finance. Prior to Resn, Chua worked with J.Walter Thompson and Leo Burnett in multiple offices across key clients like CPF, Nikon, Changi Airport, Unilever and P&G as well as new business.

Lim said, "Our strategy of collaboration is manifested in our client-centric, outcome-oriented Village way of working. Talent is naturally, a key component of our model as we believe that our success as a network is directly proportional to the strength of our people. Joseph has a proven track record of being a successful leader and his extensive experience across China, Singapore and Southeast Asia will be invaluable in enhancing our creative product. I am delighted to welcome him to the team and confident that his expertise will value-add to our ongoing efforts to make Havas Group's integrated offering resonate in the industry."
