Birkin was most recently chairman and CEO of Omnicom Asia-Pacific, based in Tokyo, a position he held since 2005, before resigning earlier this year. Prior to that he spent six years as worldwide president of Omnicom's marketing services division.

‘Michael is the second industry heavyweight to join the Huntsworth board in the last two months, following John Farrell who was appointed in July,' said Huntsworth chairman Richard Sharp. ‘That we are able to attract leading figures such as Michael and John underlines the growing stature of the Huntsworth group as we build our brands and our presence around the world.'
