SINGAPORE — Sling & Stone, the Sydney-headquartered agency that was acquired by VCCP Business earlier this year, has launched its first Southeast Asian office in Singapore.

The addition of a Singapore office follows Sling & Stone's expansion into New Zealand (2017) and the US (2018). The firm will co-locate with VCCP Singapore.

Sling & Stone's Singapore team is led by associate director Rajiv Menon, who previously helmed the technology practice at PRecious Communciations. Menon is supported by account manager Ishina Sakhrani, who also arrives from PRecious. 

“I’ve long admired the entrepreneurial spirit of Singaporean founders and startups," said Sling & Stone founder Vuki Vujasinovic. "From the moment I first visited many years ago, I knew we had to have a Sling & Stone presence here one day. We’ve found a brilliant founding team in Rajiv and Ishina, and this is just the start."

Sling & Stone already supports a number of SaaS and startup tech clients across Singapore and Asia-Pacific.

"Sling & Stone in Singapore will have all the hallmarks of our work with challengers, disrupters and innovators globally; one global team with local experts in strategy and execution," added Vujasinovic. "For startups from Southeast Asia, we’ll become a launchpad to help them expand into global markets, while multinationals expanding into the region can use us as a landing pad with strong, local experts."
