Award: PEOPLE \ PT01. Young PR Professional of the Year

From a precocious 18-year old rebel teen to a single mom struggling to make ends meet, Crystal demonstrated sheer resilience in rising from superstar rookie to business partner. After four promotions in three years and the youngest Associate Account Director at 25, she left the WPP international agency to join a fledgling Malaysian start-up. Within two years, she was pivotal in propelling the boutique agency into a multi-million-ringgit agency, growing revenues six-fold. Just shy of her 30th birthday, she was recognised for her achievements by being made an Associate Partner and is now responsible for the firm’s operations.
