In her new role, Wong, as co-owner of the business, will be focused on building the company’s brand, enabling its growing portfolio of global clients that are looking to build or elevate their brand reputation in Asia as well as spearheading client growth locally.
She will work with Manuel Hüttl, the partner and CEO of Milk & Honey Germany, Paul Cohen, the partner and CEO of Milk & Honey North America, Claire Lematta, non-executive director for Milk & Honey US and Kirsty Leighton who is the founder and group CEO of Milk & Honey PR.
