Mitchell will be based in Bangkok, forming part of a regional team of three, including Steve Blakeman, regional channel strategy director in Singapore, and Ian Gee, regional brand strategy director in Shanghai.

They will all report to King F. Lai, chief operating officer for Initiative Asia Pacific.

Lai said: "[Pete] is a true hybrid, having worked initially in traditional channels and for the past seven years in the digital space. His addition to the team marks the realisation of a new agency model we have been working towards over the past 12 months."

Mitchell said that the growth of interactive across Asia Pacific had been prolific over the past few years, partly because of new technologies.

He said: "Initiative themselves have an innovative and informed vision of interaction going forward, which is very much consumer focused. It heralds a new perspective for the industry as a whole and will challenge current conventions in the sector.

"That vision paired with such vibrant markets makes it the perfect career opportunity."

Initiative's clients include Coca-Cola, Dixons, Johnson & Johnson, Revlon, Samsonite and Sharp.
