Hill+Knowlton Strategies Strengthens Singapore Office With New MD And Deputy MD

Stocks in this article: WPPGY

Hill+Knowlton Strategies has appointed internal talent Jamie Morse to be managing director of the global firm’s Singapore office. Morse had been serving as deputy managing director of Malaysia prior to this appointment.

Former managing director Baey Yam Keng recently moved to a senior advisory role with the firm to allow him more time to focus on his position as a member of Parliament in Singapore.

In his new role, Morse will build upon the strong heritage of H+K Strategies’ Singapore operation, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. As part of his immediate focus, he will be identifying and bringing on board high-caliber talent from Singapore and the region to serve clients and grow the business, particularly in the key technology and health care sectors, as well as growing the firm’s already strong digital capabilities.

“Jamie is an exemplary international public relations professional and will be a strong in-country representative for Hill+Knowlton Strategies,” said John Morgan, president and CEO, Asia. “He’s as adept at managing sophisticated client relationships across diverse sectors as he is managing country operations to drive performance, develop staff and better serve clients. After serving in the Middle East and Southeast Asia, we're confident he will continue his successful streak in Singapore as we aim to drive our business in a regional headquarters for public relations and one of Asia's most important countries.”

Morse joined H+K Strategies in Qatar as an account director in 2009, where he led teams servicing clients in the energy, property and construction, and technology sectors. Returning to Asia in 2012, he took on the role of deputy managing director with H+K Strategies Malaysia, where he helped grow office capabilities in digital communications and increase bottom-line performance. Prior to joining H+K Strategies, Morse worked in both in-house and consultancy roles in Australia and South Korea. He has a master’s degree in professional communications from Deakin University in Australia.
