Singapore, 2 September 2015 – The local sales and marketing professionals in the media industry held their breath at the Singapore Media Awards held at the Ritz Carlton last Friday, as the winner of the Media Sales Person of the Year Award was announced.

The highly-coveted award was presented to Patrick Ong, Assistant Vice President of Sales at Mediacorp.

With over 16 years of varied sales experiences in TV, mobile and outdoor media advertising, Patrick’s steadfast enthusiasm for helping brands with diversifying needs achieving their campaign objectives and breaking through the clutter won the hearts of a panel of jury made up of industry veterans across the media and advertising field.

He works very closely with me and my team, keeping a close and steady hand on the various campaigns and projects, and has always demonstrated his sense of professionalism, with creative solutioning and tenacity in overcoming challenges that we may face from time to time,”

Patrick credits teamwork as the key attribute to his success. “I value teamwork the most and I am grateful for having a supportive working environment as we seek to provide the most professional business solutionings to our clients,” said Patrick.

Mr Bernard Chan, Chief Executive Officer, Association of Accredited Advertising Agents Singapore (4As) revealed that the jury panel went through a critical assessment, "This award was evaluated based on two key elements – media knowledge and innovation. Every media salesperson should be equipped with these fundamentals in order to work successfully with their clients to achieve campaigns that are unique."

“Mediacorp’s media products offer clear value, but it takes a dedicated, collaborative sales person who understands his client’s needs to create innovative solutions that fully leverage our complete portfolio of offerings.
