HONG KONG: Shandwick International is seeking to appoint someone to

head its broadcast division in Asia-Pacific.



Plans are at an advanced stage to fill the Hong Kong-based role, which

will be at director level and will report to Tessa Curtis, Shandwick

Broadcast’s global chief executive. Curtis is planning to travel to the

region within the next few weeks.



The specialist division was launched by Shandwick in 1997 following the

appointment of Curtis, formerly a business correspondent at the BBC. The

division is also understood to be on the verge of appointing a new head

to its German operation.



According to Curtis, the agency is seeking to build international

relations with clients such as Kodak and Barclays Global Investors. UK

clients include PricewaterhouseCoopers, the Meat and Livestock

Commission and Anglian Water.



Curtis reports to Shandwick’s UK chief executive Philip Dewhurst.
