As managing director, Integrated Brand, Butler will have immediate responsibility for the vision, strategy and operations of Edelman Singapore’s Consumer practice and partner with the firm’s digital, strategic planning and creative teams to further Edelman Singapore’s integrated marketing offer.

According to Amanda Goh, CEO of Edelman Singapore 
Brands, increasingly, need to be both authentic and talkable. Clients are already working with us on brand solutions that are earned and digital at their core,”
 Celevel’s commitment to client innovation and creativity coupled with her experience in leading award-winning integrated brand teams will further fast track our communications marketing mandate with clients.”
With two decades of award-winning work in advertising, creative and brand marketing, Butler was most recently general manager of Saatchi & Saatchi Singapore. Over her seven-year tenure as general manager, she transformed the Singapore operation into a regional hub, leading 120 consultants and expanded Saatchi & Saatchi’s client portfolio into consumer products, tourism, banking and finance, insurance and automotive.

Butler was most recently recognized at Cannes and Spikes Asia for her work for Scoot’s “Inspiring Spirit” Integrated and PR campaign.  Ms. Butler said 
Building brands has shifted away from communicating through a TVC to earning the attention of audiences,”   
Edelman’s PR heritage and strength in digital positions the agency as a leading partner to help brands navigate the changing communications landscape. I am energized by this new challenge and look forward to working my talented colleagues to evolve Edelman into the agency of the future for our clients.”
