Di9it, the digital creative agency of DM9 JaymeSyfu, makes another senior hire with the appointment of Acee Vitangcol as its new director for social media.
Vitangcol (right) comes from Havas Media Ortega working as a social planner for blue-chip clients like Globe, Unilever, LBC and Krispy Kreme. He started his career in TNS / Kantar Worldpanel and jumped to digital when he moved on to ABS-CBN as their digital strategist for News & Current Affairs.
Vitangcol marks the third senior hire Di9it has made since late March as it grows its roster of creative talents. He joins Essa Balao (left) which was appointed as CRM Director last week and Julia Pronstroller (center), who was named as group account director last month.

Di9it said that getting new people is the “natural evolution of a business that’s growing,” but Carlo Ople, Di9it managing director & partner, comments that it’s not without caveats.
“Finding the right people is actually one of the most difficult things to do in our industry. Digital is still young in the country and the talent pool is still growing”
“That’s why it’s absolutely critical that we clearly define the DNA of the marketers and creatives that we want to come on board Di9it. Julia, Essa, and Acee bring a lot of value to the table and our clients will definitely benefit from them immensely,” adds Ople.
