LOS ANGELES—Manning Selvage & Lee has promoted Glenn Osaki to director of its Asia-Pacific region and Brenda Lynch to co-managing director of MS&L’s Los Angeles office, a role she will share with Osaki.
Osaki has been managing director of MS&L Los Angeles since 1999. He has also coordinated significant business migration between the U.S. and Asia for several global clients of MS&L and its sister agency, Dentsu Public Relations in Japan.
“Glenn helped put MS&L Los Angeles on the map during his 16 years with our firm,” said Jill Farwell, president of North America. “At the same time, he has been instrumental in deepening our relationship with Dentsu Public Relations and is very well-suited to strategically support MS&L’s expansion in Asia-Pacific’s key markets.”
Lynch, most recently a senior vice president, is a 14-year veteran of the firm. She has managed MS&L’s consumer marketing and consumer technology practices in North America.
As co-managing directors, Osaki will focus on identifying growth opportunities for the office through new business, partnerships with sister agencies and expansion into new competencies, while Lynch will manage day-to-day operations including overseeing client service, professional development and training initiatives.
