HONG KONG: Warburg Dillon Read, the investment banking arm of

global finance house UBS, has appointed Mark Panday as head of media

relations and employee communications across Asia.



Panday started last week in the Hong-Kong based role, reporting to

Warburg’s head of corporate communications Renate Boerner. Before

joining the bank, he was a financial journalist working as senior editor

of the International Financing Review Asia. Prior to that, he worked for

finance journals Euromoney, the International Securitisation Report and

Fund Research.



In addition to its country PR heads, who report to Panday, Warburg

retains Gavin Anderson and Company in Asia and a roster of other

agencies on a project basis. Panday’s post covers all of Asia-Pacific

except for Japan and Australia, markets which are considered

’self-contained’ by the local financial PR community.



Until his appointment, Panday’s role was split between Boerner and

Matthew McGrath. McGrath left Warburg last month to become managing

director of Citigate Dewe Rogerson’s Asian operation based in Hong Kong.
