FleishmanHillard has appointed senior vice president and partner Li Yu as regional talent development lead for the Asia Pacific region, replacing Sally Woo who is emigrating to Canada after nearly five years with the firm.
In her new role, Yu will be tasked with continuing to build FleishmanHillard’s talent in the region, as well as leading the region’s performance management; leadership development; and recognition, retention and rewards programs.
“Sally did a tremendous job in one of the most highly valued roles on our leadership team. We are sincerely grateful for her many contributions, including mentoring Yu Li to take on this role ,” said Lynne Anne Davis, FleishmanHillard senior partner, Asia Pacific president.
“Yu Li epitomizes the collaborative and collegial culture of FleishmanHillard and understands that people are the center of our business and our culture,” added Davis. “She is respected for her integrity, hard work and good humor. As a leader, Yu Li not only reinforces our values and our collaborative style, she has a real gift for bringing out the best in our people.”
Yu previously served as FleishmanHillard’s head of talent development for Greater China, and spent eight months of her 12-year tenure at the firm working in its global headquarters in the United States.
Before joining FleishmanHillard in 2005, Yu worked for three years at a leading logistic company in Beijing, and started her career at JPMorgan Chase in Paris.
