FleishmanHillard Beijing appoints corporate communications head

FleishmanHillard has appointed senior vice president Cedric Vanhaver as the new head of corporate communications of its Beijing office.

Vanhaver leads a growing team and portfolio of clients that spans multiple industries, including technology, travel and luxury. He joined FleishmanHillard’s Hong Kong office in 2010 before transitioning to its Beijing location this year.

Having spent more than 15 years at communications agencies, Vanhaver brings experience that helps both Chinese and international companies elevate their corporate reputations in China.

Spending eight years in Silicon Valley before moving to Asia, he has a strong background working with technology companies. He also has significant experience serving clients in professional services.

“As China continues to develop into a world-leading economy, issues around corporate social responsibility, fair labour practices and corporate governance will continue to generate needs for strategic corporate communications work,” said Li Hong, president of FleishmanHillard in China.

“With the addition Cedric to the experienced team in place, we are well-positioned to help both Chinese and international organisations build and safeguard their corporate reputation through authentic communication.”
