Sandpiper Communications has made two senior hires for Greater China, adding Emily Siu (pictured right) and Lisa Fong (pictured left) as account directors who are based in the Hong Kong office.
Both Siu and Fong will work closely with the senior management team to strengthen the firm’s financial services, corporate, and professional services offerings.
Fong specialises in advising global clients in the areas of strategic communications, reputation management, and digital strategy. Prior to Sandpiper Communications, she held roles in international agencies including Finsbury and Teneo, where she advised a range of clients in investment banking, real estate, asset management, technology, hedge funds, fintech, and the legal sector.
Siu is an expert in strategic communications advisory for the financial services and professional services sectors. Prior to joining Sandpiper Communications, Siu was a director in FTI Consulting’s Strategic Communications practice where she specialised in corporate reputation management and multi-stakeholder communications. Her experience includes advising clients on crisis and special situations projects, including cross-border M&A, shareholder disputes, corporate restructuring and downsizing as well as c-suite personnel departures and appointments.
These additions follow the appointment of Natalie Siu as general manager of the Hong Kong office and Jenny Jackson, hired to launch the firm’s healthcare practice in the Hong Kong market.
"These appointments will further deepen our expertise in the financial and professional services sectors and our advisory offering in crisis management and financial communications. I am confident they will significantly contribute to our team in the region as we promote and protect our clients’ businesses and reputations, particularly in highly-regulated sectors," Siu commented.
