Senior Publisher

She encompasses a unique blend of experience in design, production, sales, marketing and circulation across an array of publications which includes the lifestyle, business, trade and directory fields. Utilising her skill sets, she conceptualised and spearheaded the production and execution of several special projects for established clients such as Cold Storage (under Dairy Farm), Dulux (under AkzoNobel), Republic Polytechnic, and several other government-initiated campaigns. Her various stints in and understanding of these target markets and overall production knowledge have also enabled her to work well with diversified clients, and produce quality final products that meet their objectives.

Being one of the early adopters to embrace the digital era, Mei Siah instrumented the launch of the Teenage website back in 2006, and it was supported by the South East CDC youth department. Following the success of this initial digital conversion, all the titles under her portfolio have subsequently went on to establish their own websites and social media platforms.
