Grayling, a global communications consultancy as part of the Huntsworth group, has promoted Neelesh Hotwani to director and head of office in Hong Kong.

Hotwani was previously associate director at Grayling, and was lead counsel on the company’s portfolio of regional strategy and coordination accounts.

In his new role, Hotwani will be responsible for managing and developing Grayling’s business in Hong Kong, and will report into Huntsworth Asia-Pacific CEO Chris Tang.

Meanwhile, Grayling Hong Kong has also appointed Holly Axelrad as associate director. Axelrad joins the team from London, bringing with her extensive experience running consumer campaigns for major FMCG and luxury brands.

She will lead Grayling Hong Kong’s growing consumer practice.

“Neelesh’s strong track record of leadership, high service standards, and his rigorous and strategic approach to communications, make him the perfect candidate to take the business to the next level.”
