Marcus' Story


Marcus is Head of Digital at PHAR, and has been with the company for 2 years. 

He started his career at Deloitte Consulting UK where he worked in the Tech, Media and Telco consulting practice. Subsequently he completed the London 2012 Olympics project upon which time he was looking for a new challenge with an entrepreneurial, meritocratic company. 

He joined the PHAR Insight team in London and helped develop the market-leading suite of sponsorship research and evaluation tools and worked on a number of key clients as an Account Director. After just under a year in that role, the opportunity arose to apply his knowledge of data and programmatic learnt at Deloitte and launch PHAR Focus, the programmatic arm of PHAR. He is now based in South East Asia and has grown his own team of ad traders, digital campaign coordinators and sales staff across 5 different countries. 

Manju's Story


Manju was the third person to join PHAR in Asia back in 2011 and had the task of setting up a finance team and looking after Indran and Sen (our first two employees).

Through all the ups and downs of growing a new business she has been the rock that has made sure that we report our numbers, make our payments and collect our invoices.

Manju now travels the region overseeing finance teams in Jakarta, Bangkok and Manila and has become an expert in setting up offices in new countries in the region. In her spare time, she is now studying for an MBA.   

Sen's Story


Sen joined PHAR back in 2011, as one of the initial intake of sales executives - his first job in Malaysia following a degree at Nottingham University. It quickly became clear that Sen would become part of the family, as his hunger to learn and progress his career, meant he was perfect for PHAR. Quickly progressing through Sales Executive, Manager and Director, Sen is now Head of Sales for Malaysia and running our largest sales team in Asia, at the age of 28 years old. Going forward we aim to fulfill Sen’s aim to work internationally as he continues to grow.
