SPH launches new creative and content marketing unit Sweet

Singapore, 2 July 2018 - Since mid-June, agency leads and trade professionals from Dentsu Aegis Network, OMD/PHD, Group M, IPG and Zenith (Publicis) were engaged in candid panel discussions on the future of content marketing with publishers, led by Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) editors and leadership team.


On the agenda: the company’s strategic move towards priming its operations for stronger innovation, led first, by bringing together its content marketing teams - SPH Content Lab and Brand New Media - along with CreativeLAB and THINK Inc., as one unified entity to offer top-of-class client solutions.


In a word: Sweet.


The launch of the Sweet brand marks a commitment by SPH to strengthen its alliance with agencies and clients. It meets an increasing demand among clients for integrated storytelling across a range of multimedia formats, which has been steadily growing over the past two years.


Sweet marks the spot for brands, with SPH’s creative powerhouses now a full-service business unit positioned to deliver solutions in content, creative, branding, events, advertising campaigns and inbound marketing.


The benefit for clients: deep strategic thinking executed by world-class creative talents.


Sweet is fully owned by SPH, and managed by a dynamic, growth-oriented leadership team, a highly credentialed group of marketers, strategists, creators, writers, designers and producers. Drawing on the company’s resources, deep consumer insights and access to audiences across omni-channel platforms, it offers a diverse suite of formats, seamlessly executed.


At its helm is Mr Damien Bray, Chief Sweet Officer. The previous CEO of SPH subsidiary Brand New Media Asia brings with him 25 years of experience in operating marketing service agencies.


He said: “This is an exciting time as we bring together the combined talents and experience from Brand New Media, SPH Content Lab and CreativeLAB, as well as THINK Inc., to add value and support to clients, as well as complement and partner with the capabilities of their agencies. I'm super excited to be leading such an amazingly talented creative and content team.
