Google Philippines announced today the appointment of veteran marketing manager Kenneth Lingan as Country Manager for the Philippines.

Before Google, Lingan worked at Unilever where he was Vice President for Deodorants, Southeast Asia and ANZ, based out of Singapore. Prior to that, he was Marketing Director for Unilever Home and Personal Care in the Gulf Region.

“Ken’s 16 years of experience in marketing and brand development will be a real asset as we continue to grow our business from the Manila office,” said Julian Persaud, Google’s managing director for Southeast Asia.

Lingan’s appointment comes 11 months after Google posted the vacant role on Google’s official recruitment site last February 27.

“The Philippines is fast digitizing, and I am very much inspired by the possibilities that Google can bring our users, advertisers, and publishers here. I’m delighted to be part of Google’s journey in the Philippines, helping to bring tools and products that make a meaningful impact in people’s lives and enabling businesses to make the most of the Internet to grow their enterprise,” Lingan said.

Lingan graduated from the Ateneo de Manila University with a degree in Management Engineering.
