Vice Media has announced a series of new offices for Asia Pacific, including a new regional headquarters in Singapore, signaling a bigger focus on the region from the publisher.
A key reason for the expansion, according to Vice, is the potential of the large number of young people in the region. Citing United Nations figures, Vice says , the region is home to 60% of the world’s young people, “demonstrating a significant opportunity for the youth-focused media brand”.
The new headquarters in Singapore will be led by Vice global general manager Hosi Simon, who will relocate to assume role of CEO of Vice Asia Pacific.
