StarHub’s head of brand and communications has stepped down from her post in July – some eight months after assuming the role in end-November. According to Marketing Interactive, the role involved leading multiple functions within the telco’s consumer business group, including branding, marketing communications, digital, performance marketing and in-house creative team.

Just a month before in early June, StarHub appointed Grey Group Singapore to lead creative duties for its digital telco sub-brand giga! for one year, with the possibility of extension.

Latest data from YouGov BrandIndex, which tracks consumer sentiment towards thousands of brands daily, shows how StarHub’s brand health – across its mobile, pay TV and broadband businesses – have changed between January 2022 to July 2023.
