Meet Dominic Powers

Dominic is the Managing Director for International leading strategy and day-to-day operations in APAC and EMEA.

My role
I’m responsible for leading strategy and day-to-day operations throughout the APAC and EMEA regions, including Epsilon offices in Australia, China, India, Japan, Singapore, the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland, Germany, France and Spain. I’m the go-to guy for guidance for senior business leaders in all our international offices.

My story
I’ve lived on and off in Asia since 1992, with the last eighteen years based in Hong Kong working in the digital and marketing industry, during which time I’ve become a recognized thought leader on data-driven marketing and privacy issues. I currently serve on the board of a number of regional DMAs, and I am a founding board member of the Digital & Direct Marketing Association of Asia ([D+DMA] Asia). Having managed the APAC region from 2002, I took on responsibility for EMEA in 2011. When I’m not working I enjoy collecting classic Mercedes Benz, vinyl records, hiking and saving Hong Kong’s Country Parks.

My philosophy
Always be true to yourself – life is too short to be doing something you do not enjoy. And don’t be afraid to take risks, just always make sure you learn from everything that you do, whether successful or not, so that you never have to regret the things that you did not do.

My qualifications
BA Modern Chinese Studies, University of Leeds, UK / Tianjin. Normal University, People’s Republic of China.
Diploma Chinese Language, Taipei Normal University, Taiwan.
