Jane Morgan jumps to Golin to lead Hong Kong office as MD

Public relations firm Golin has recruited Jane Morgan as managing director in Hong Kong, to drive what it called a mission to become an integrated marketing firm with PR, digital and content at its core.

Morgan, one of the industry's more promising talents, has spent the past year and a half as director of consumer marketing at Edelman, where she headed up a team of 17 consultants and clients across food and beverage, travel and hospitality, fashion, beauty, retail and luxury. Prior to Edelman, she was vice president of the Greater China consumer practice at Ketchum.

Morgan steps in to fill the shoes of Jeremy Walker, who will take on a broader regional role driving the growth of its integrated work.

"I am thrilled that both Jane and Jeremy have agreed to take on these new roles," said Jonathan Hughes, Golin’s president in Asia.

"Amazing things happen when you have great people doing what they love."

Hughes described Morgan as a passionate, nurturing and driven leader.

"I am particularly excited by the opportunity to lead the Hong Kong team and to further bring the g4 vision to life,” Morgan added.

"Golin has a unique culture, ambition and drive that is extremely infectious. I love that we describe ourselves as the nice guys who kick-ass. I’m looking forward to getting started and helping our clients to deliver outstanding, integrated work both here in Hong Kong and across the region."
