Virginia Lim has joined Mediacorp as chief content officer, succeeding Doreen Neo, who is taking on the new role of chief talent officer.
“Mediacorp is at the center of a vibrant transmedia ecosystem, engaging over 3 million people in Singapore daily across multiple platforms,” said Mediacorp CEO Tham Loke Kheng. “We are the home of local storytelling and local talent and best positioned to grow our talents and share our stories beyond our shores, be it through our own productions or working with partners. With her strong leadership and experience, Doreen, is well placed to take us to the next level in talent development. I also look forward to having Virginia join us. With her impressive track record, she will be a valuable addition to the team as we accelerate our efforts to drive our creative content production to greater heights.”
Neo will oversee talent development and management across the Singaporean media group, focusing on nurturing talent locally and helping them find opportunities outside of the island nation. “I have always believed in nurturing our local talents and growing them into stars with regional and international appeal,” Neo said. “This move is part of our continuous effort to provide more opportunities for our artists and to showcase homegrown talents to a wider audience.”
Lim joins Mediacorp from Viu, where she was chief content officer. “I am excited with the opportunity to contribute to the local media scene in my home country, especially working with the talented teams and resources at Mediacorp,” Lim said on her new post. “I look forward to creating stellar original content that’s enjoyable and inspiring from Singapore to the rest of the region.”
