Bryce Whitwam's research interests lie in the growth and proliferation of eCommerce and social media platforms. Having lived and worked in China for 17 years, Whitwam sees innovative practices on Chinese social platforms that could potentially influence Western ones. Whitwam comes to Newhouse as a 25-year advertising industry veteran, having served as Greater China CEO of WPP’s Wunderman from 2008 to 2019.

Fluent in Mandarin, he also served in leadership roles at MRM//McCann, Ogilvy, Mullen Lowe and Nielsen, and is considered an Asian expert in digital marketing and social CRM. Whitwam also served as an adjunct professor of Integrated Communications at NYU Shanghai. He is co-host of China’s largest English language marketing podcast, "ShanghaiZhan." While not enjoying his passion for Chinese food, Whitwam spends his spare time playing his French horn and listening to his jazz record collection.
