HONG KONG— GfK has made a trio of appointments in its consumer experiences team in Hong Kong in the shape of Roland Leung, Karen Khao and Cliff Chan.

Leung (pictured) joins as head of innovation research following a spell at Synovate where he was MD for emerging industries in Greater China and head of the Hong Kong and Guangzhou offices. He has spent 17 years in the industry.

Karen Khao has been appointed as head of consumer experiences in Hong Kong after holding senior positions at Nielsen and Oracle Added Value.

Lastly, Cliff Chan has been named senior research manager. He was previously senior project director at Synovate.

The moves come a month after GfK appointed Ashok Sethi from TNS as regional development director APAC. He was joined by four new managing directors across key offices.
