Finn Partners makes two key appointments

Finn Partners has made two senior appointments to management with immediate effect. 

Previously general manager, China, Jenny Lo has been promoted to managing partner for the country as the Chinese market is crucial to the agency's business. In her new position, Lo is responsible for growing the agency’s footprint in client and talent acquisition.

“China is fertile ground for FINN’s expertise in health, technology, consumer and travel. While our office has been here for 12 years, the potential for growth is limitless,” said Lo.

Meanwhile, Naeema Ismail has been promoted to managing partner, Singapore from her previous role as senior partner and general manager, Ying PR, formerly Ying Communications which was acquired by FINN Partners in April 2017. 

“Singapore is the gateway to Asia. FINN is well positioned to help companies craft their strategy and message, and drive business leads from across the region. We’re seeing a surge in demand for our integrated communication offerings, especially in the digital and insights space. It has been an incredible 20 years for us so far. I’m both humbled and proud to lead our constantly growing team of inspiring professionals into this next chapter,” said Ismail. 

The agency said these appointments demonstrated FINN Partners' investment in strengthening the senior leadership team in Asia. They come at a time when the agency is seeing significant demand for its integrated solutions, which include branding, media and social media, creatives, digital and insights.

Singapore-based managing partners Allan Tan and Yin Ching Yeap will become executive advisors for Asia, providing counsel and guidance to the Asia leadership team and focusing on building the agency’s training capabilities. Managing partner Cathy Feliciano-Chon will continue to be responsible for the agency’s North Asian offices in Hong Kong and Shanghai. Industry veteran Jean-Michel Dumont came on board in March as senior advisor to work with the global and Asia leadership team to support the Asia strategy and operational growth.

"Asia is a very important region for FINN and we continue to look for opportunities to grow our presence here, both organically and through strategic acquisitions. We are especially excited about the world-class talent that we’ve found here – people who do amazing work for clients every day and live by our value of ‘work hard, play nice'," added Peter Finn, CEO of FINN Partners.
