Ruder Finn has named Holly Huang as director, Singapore, and head of financial services, Southeast Asia. Huang brings more than a decade of experience across public relations, investor relations and public affairs, servicing multiple markets across Asia and beyond in both senior agency roles and in-house capacities previously.
Her client portfolio has spanned global and local banks, asset and fund managers, investment banks, wealth managers, insurers, FinTech firms, and governmental and multilateral institutions. She will report to Martin Alintuck, managing director, Southeast Asia.
“2019 is an exciting time to be working in both the financial services and communications industries. Financial institutions are finding themselves after more than a decade of uncertainty. They are reinventing their business models – and by extension their communications strategies – and are capitalising on rapidly advancing digital technologies. Every organisation I speak to has an inspiring story to tell, and with Ruder Finn’s capabilities across the region, we’re ready to bring these stories to the financial services community and public at large,” said Huang (pictured).
Huang will lead a team that services all segments within the financial services industry, whether across banking, the capital markets or insurance. Underpinning their work are three focus areas: sustainable finance; belt and road initiative (BRI); and disruptive technologies.
Alintuck said: “Holly brings vast experience in integrated communications, deep industry knowledge and an impressive track record to Ruder Finn. She joins at an exciting time for the firm, as we grow not just in Singapore, but across Southeast Asia. We warmly welcome her to the Ruder Finn family, and look forward to working together with Huang to help clients create both exciting and impactful projects.”
