Mangham Gaxiola

Our Story

Singapore’s biggest yet smallest agency.

Mangham Gaxiola is now part of something bigger and better.

With mcgarrybowen as our partner, we have the backing of a leading New York-based creative agency that has been named Agency of the Year 6 times in a row.

Being part of the Dentsu Aegis Network also means that we now have a strong Asian-based global network behind us, allowing us to offer our regional clients more support and reach.

Together, we can create ideas that have a powerful voice in the marketplace. With people who care enough to do better work for the brands of our clients.

Because at the end of the day, it's not the 100 who aren't working on your brand, but the few senior people who really are that matters.

Our Beliefs

Stephen Mangham and Robert Gaxiola have led big agencies long enough to know that clients don't need a big agency in order to get the best people on their business. Or, for that matter, create the best work.

We are solution agnostic. That means we won't try and sell departments, tools™, or teams you don't need. Instead, we approach all opportunities with the right people and open minds.

Every day, we strive to lift, understand and improve the strongest solution on the table. We call this the process of illumination. This way of working strengthens our culture of collaboration. And brings out the best in our clients and their brands.

Who we are

  • Loh Yu Lin

  • Stephen Mangham

  • Robert Gaxiola

  • Neko the Cat

Around here there are no titles. No time sheets. No snake-oiled philosophies. No rankings.
And no big agency rhetoric that gets in the way of creativity.

We value relationships, furry animals and the brands we work with.
Together we deploy our talent, brains and tactics to keep the beautiful wheels of commerce in motion.

And that is the bottom line.

Loh Yu Lin

Yu Lin is perhaps the youngest agency partner in Singapore. The Malaysian native started her advertising career over 10 years ago at Dentsu, Kuala Lumpur. Network agencies FCB, JWT and Saatchi & Saatchi followed. Her category experience includes automotive, education, beauty, pharmaceutical, FMCG and finance. In 2010 she left the comforts of home to join Ogilvy Singapore. It was there where she stood out as one of the strongest account directors, working on Ogilvy's fastest growing account, CIMB Bank. Yu Lin currently leads the CIMB Bank account at Mangham Gaxiola.

Stephen Mangham

Stephen Mangham is the former Ogilvy Singapore Group Chairman. He is regarded as one of the most successful agency leaders in Asia. During his six-year tenure, the Singapore office nearly trebled their revenue and also grew in headcount from 240 to 600 people. In his final year, the agency won both Campaign Asia's Creative Agency of the Year and Digital Agency of the Year in SE Asia. Yet, topping Marketing Magazine's client survey six years in a row is the one accolade he is most proud of.


Neko is a nasty-ass Bengal cat, which is a hybrid mix between a domestic feline and the wild Asian Leopard Cat. In English, his Japanese name means 'fortune cat' or 'lucky cat'. This spotted little talisman has been in the agency since we opened for business in 2012. You can find the spritely little guy guarding the staircase between floors at the agency most any day of the week.

Robert Gaxiola

Gax is the former Ogilvy Executive Creative Director, and has worked in Singapore since 1995. Over the last decade he was the ECD of Ogilvy, Batey Ads, Bates141 and FCB Singapore. In 2006 he was the first winner of the IAS's Creative Director of the Year award. He returned home only once in 2007 to work at San Francisco's famed Goodby Silverstein and Partners. Two years later, the opportunity to work at Ogilvy with Stephen Mangham brought him back to the CBD. The two left the agency with a duffle bag of awards which included Cannes Lions and two rare D&AD Yellow Pencils.
