GolinHarris grabs Glenn Schloss

Recruited to expand the roster of GolinHarris’ corporate communications business – including engagements in corporate reputation, issues and crisis management, corporate governance, corporate social responsibility and business-to-business communications, Glenn Schloss joins the firm as executive director.

“The corporate communications practice has experienced tremendous growth over the past year and continues its expansion into the New Year,” said Jeremy Walker, GolinHarris’ managing director of Hong Kong.

“Glenn’s energy, award winning background in journalism, his strategic approach to solving challenges and ability to get ahead of the story for clients will play a vital role in driving the growth of our practice in Hong Kong.”

With more than a decade of experience as a corporate communications adviser and 17 years as an award-winning journalist, Schloss has provided counsel to a broad range of blue-chip multinational and Asian countries in the financial, energy, technology, healthcare and FMCG sectors.

“Corporate communications is changing quickly from the reactive stance of companies tending to shy away from engaging externally to a more proactive stance where leading businesses embrace stakeholders and even collaborate with groups such as NGOs,” said Schloss.

“GolinHarris with its heritage and strength in corporate communications and public affairs have a unique understanding of the complex stakeholder environment and I am pleased to be joining this award winning team.”
