Weber Shandwick appoints co-MDs for SG
The move allows current managing director Baxter Jolly to take on added responsibilities in his broader role as vice chairman, Asia Pacific.
Previously, Cunico, headed the consumer & entertainment practice, working directly with a number of the firm's clients in the hospitality, retail, aviation and education sectors, among others.
Ho-Nikolovski has been with Weber Shandwick for more than a decade and previously led the program for one of the agency's key clients in Asia/Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, managing its strategic corporate communications, brand building and reputation management efforts across 24 markets.
"We are extremely pleased that Margaret and Vanessa are taking on the co-MD roles, which is a natural transition from the way they have been supporting the company's growth alongside Baxter Jolly," said Tim Sutton, chairman, Asia Pacific, Weber Shandwick.
"Both are respected industry veterans and have played a key role in supporting our regional and global network as well as establishing a strong ethos among the 70 plus strong staff in the Singapore office."
Cunico started her career as a journalist with the SPH Group, working across its newspaper and magazine titles. She then joined the public relations industry with agency and in-house stints, before joining Weber Shandwick.
Prior to joining Weber Shandwick, Ho-Nikolovski worked as a public relations practitioner in New York and Hong Kong. She started her career as a journalist with The Straits Times.
