Nadong added that she intends to lead the FCB creative team with eyes wide open to current situations that affect Philippine advertising industry. “Geopolitics and a growing search for meaning and purpose impact marketing and communication.

Being part of the current Creative Guild of the Philippines board, Nadong sees a rekindling of the community “that transcends disciplines, crossing barriers, hurdling known limitations in order to arrive at meaning and to inspire meaning.”

 Prior to joining FCB Manila, Nadong started her career at Lowe and was at the creative helm of agencies such as Crush, Saatchi, VMLY&R and Evident.
