In 1986 he accepted a posting to move from London to Singapore and is back in Singapore today after traveling extensively in the Asia Pacific region.
For 11 years Ron led media owner businesses in Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia and Thailand many of which were truly pioneering new media channels and communication ideas.
In 1997 Ron switched to media specialist agency business and settled in Singapore along with his wife and their two children. From a regional HQ in Singapore Ron set up branches of Poster Publicity in Hong Kong, Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, Australia and China. The chain of specialists was merged with Portland in 2005 and renamed Kinetic Worldwide, which has become

Ron left Kinetic towards the end of 2008 and launched Media On The Go (MOTG), an independent consulting services for the OOH industry. MOTG has assisted many companies with solutions for business development, marketing strategies, mergers and acquisitions plus investment sourcing, throughout the Asia Pacific region.
These days, Ron stays actively involved in new developments in outdoor advertising matters, including OOH, ambient, digital OOH, mobile and integrated solutions.

Away from work Ron loves the great outdoors and spends vacations fishing and biking in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, scuba-diving in the Philippines, fishing off the coast of Malaysia or just simply enjoying a beer at some alfresco bar with a nice view.
