A strong designer with a talent for both managing diverse teams and grasping and articulating client needs, Ranko Kume has recently transitioned into the role of Head of Office for M Moser in Kuala Lumpur.

Ranko Kume Appointed New Head Of M Moser Kuala Lumpur


5 January, 2015

Born in Tokyo and raised in Singapore, Malaysia and the US, Ranko Kume joined the Kuala Lumpur team as an Associate and immediately played an important role in engaging with clients and designing solutions to fulfil their needs. The last two years have seen her make vital contributions to a wide range of projects big and small, including for such clients as Google, Nike and Guinness Anchor Berhad.

“It goes deeper than the enjoyment of working on diverse projects; it’s also very rewarding to understand the different working cultures and needs of different companies. That’s the real foundation of delivering workplaces that are unique and effective for the client,” says Kume.

Prior to joining M Moser, Kume earned a BA from Cornell University’s Undergraduate College of Arts & Science before moving to London to gain RIBA I qualification from the Architecture Association School of Architecture. Her subsequent professional career took her to both the UK and Malaysia, where she worked on a series of workplace projects for clients from across the spectrum of business.

M Moser Kuala Lumpur’s previous Head of Office, Adrian Symons, is now in the global role of Director – International Projects, but remains based in Kuala Lumpur and will continue to work closely with Kume and the team.

“One of Adrian’s greatest achievements in his decade as Head of Office was creating an extremely talented, solid team, and real partnerships with clients,” says Kume. “I couldn’t have asked for a better start, and I look forward to continuing his work.”
