About Nicholas

I have worked in the Marketing industry regionally for over 10 years, both on the agency side (IPG Mediabrands, Cheil Worldwide) and in-house digital marketing roles with Celcom Axiata Berhad and RHB Banking Group.

I have held senior digital marketing roles and have successfully built & led teams across the region, prior to joining Fixx Digital. From my Operations Director post, I oversee the company’s business operations including finance, business development and human resources, specifically helping Fixx Digital to scale its operations and expand its regional footprint. I have a deep interest in disrupting the food and agriculture industry.
