Glenn Osaki, Regional President, oversees Publicis Groupe’s flagship strategic communications and engagement consultancy, MSLGROUP in Asia. In 2005, Osaki relocated from Los Angeles where he held the position of managing director, to Shanghai to take the helm of what was then a fledgling firm with only three small offices and 20 member staff. In less than 10 years, Osaki architected a formidable development strategy that saw the agency multiply to over 34 owned offices and 1,500 employees through industry-leading organic growth and acquisition of eight agencies across the region. Despite this late entry into the region, the firm has thrived under Osaki’s leadership, expanding to become the largest PR agency network in Asia in terms of owned offices, staff size and revenue.
His firm has been named "PR Agency Network of the Year" for 2012 and 2013 by Campaign Asia-Pacific/PRWeek. Rounding out an impressive string of over 50 awards won by MSLGROUP in Asia over two years, Osaki was named Campaign's "PR Agency Head of the Year" in 2013.
