GWI Launches New Office in Singapore, Expands APAC Footprint
GWI, the leading target audience company, today announces the opening of its first APAC office this October in Singapore.
Currently headquartered in London with offices in New York, Prague and Athens, the new Singapore office will position GWI as leading providers of world class research capabilities and solid insights to companies in the APAC region.
Tom Smith, CEO and Founder of GWI explains: “We are powering a world where every business knows its audience. We need to build our presence on the ground in the Asia Pacific to take advantage of the region’s rapidly growing business opportunities. APAC currently represents 20% of our accounts, worth £1.275bn, and has the largest compound annual growth rate (CAGR). Since 2017, APAC has experienced the fastest growth of any region with CAGR in excess of 35%.
“What’s more, our own data* tells us that 71% of professionals in APAC agree that being able to adapt quickly is critical to their company’s long term success. Over a third (34%) of decision-makers in APAC say that keeping up with the latest trends is one of their main considerations for bringing in a new product or service. So we know the businesses in the region are in need of fresh data to help them make critical decisions, and by setting up an office in the region we can enable them to focus on what matters, find the best ideas and then make them happen.
“What’s more, over a third (37%)* of professionals in APAC say that understanding their customer or client audience is one of the biggest challenges their company faces, making it their fourth biggest challenge out of a list of about 25 challenges. This really highlights the need for robust, reliable consumer data. Interestingly, this is highest among business professionals in India and Singapore. Creating a presence on the ground will therefore help us to stay ahead of the ever-changing needs of our customers operating in the region.”
Singapore is well positioned to act as a launchpad for high growth, low penetration markets such as China, Japan and Australia. GWI already works extensively with businesses in the APAC region, especially New Zealand and Australia.
Tom continues: “Significantly, we are increasingly asked for local support by some of our biggest clients, from independent agencies to corporate brands. We therefore decided this is the perfect time to expand our company and open an office in Singapore. By putting a team in Singapore, we will be able to overcome any language, cultural, network and timezone challenges whilst accelerating APAC growth.”
The APAC office will initially be staffed by a combination of relocated European team members and locally sourced talent. The open job positions can be viewed here. The expansion into APAC will allow GWI to realise continued growth in the years to come following its successes in 2020 where the company signed over 200 new enterprise customers and posted more than 40% growth in annual recurring revenue.

BeiGene Receives Positive CHMP Opinion for BRUKINSA ® (Zanubrutinib) for the Treatment of Adults with Waldenström’s Macroglobulinemia17.9.2021 14:00:00 CEST | Press release
BeiGene (NASDAQ: BGNE; HKEX: 06160) today announced the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has adopted a positive opinion, recommending approval of BRUKINSA (zanubrutinib) for the treatment of adult patients with Waldenström’s macroglobulinemia (WM) who have received at least one prior therapy or first-line treatment for patients unsuitable for chemo-immunotherapy. “Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibitors have emerged as a promising treatment for WM, yet treatment discontinuation due to lack of response or side effects remains a concern,” said Prof. Christian Buske, Medical Director at the University Hospital Ulm, Germany, and a trial investigator of the ASPEN study. “The ASPEN trial demonstrated that BRUKINSA provided deep and durable responses and offered substantial improvements in safety and tolerability over standard therapy. Patients in Europe with WM may soon have a new treatment option that can offer improved outcomes.
