Andrews Partnership Expands Asia
Footprint With New Office In Singapore
APPOINTMENT OF GARTNER’S REGIONAL DIRECTOR OF ADVISORY, SIMON HAYES, TO HEAD UP THE OPERATIONS & STRENGTHEN ITS SENIOR LEADERSHIP TEAM.
With the demand for top corporate affairs/investor relations talent in Asia growing, Andrews Partnership has expanded its commitment to the region, opening a Singapore office to complement its existing presence in Hong Kong. To be led by Simon Hayes, the Singapore office will focus on supporting the needs of fast-expanding businesses in Southeast Asia in communications and government relations, and will take on responsibility for Andrew’s Partnership’s Asia Pacific investor relations practice.
Across APAC, communications professionals are taking on ever-more important responsibilities for driving and sustaining internal culture. They’re also now perceived as critical investments in building and maintaining relationships with external stakeholders such as investors, partners, suppliers, media and government. While the COVID-19 crisis has shone a spotlight on the industry, a long-term shift to better, more measurable and more effective communications is driving a demand for more skilled and experienced talent. Andrews Partnership is ideally positioned to support corporate affairs/IR talent needs across the region, with local offices that understand the needs of Asia-based employers and candidates.
Andrews Partnership Managing Partner Katrina Andrews said: “the opening of an office in Singapore proceeds the demand that we have experienced for the past 5 years from our South East Asia business. Having this office on the ground, allows us to service Singapore-based clients and candidates as well as clients from around the world operating in Singapore advising on their most valuable asset, their people.”
Simon joins Andrews Partnership from Gartner, a NYSE-listed management consulting firm where he was Director of Advisory for the business’ Asia Finance practice. Simon has 12 years’ experience working with Chief Financial Officers on communicating growth and margin strategies to stakeholders, investors and markets. Prior to this role, he spent a decade as a journalist, working for The Australian, Australia’s national daily newspaper, covering technology and business news.
