Teo will be based in Singapore and report to global vice chairman and chairman Asia-Pacific Vivian Lines,

"Innovation and creativity is central to the success of our growth strategy for Asia Pacific and as a result our search for talent focuses on those with backgrounds beyond traditional PR, including digital, content creation, analytics and publishing," said Lines, "Pamela is a senior HR practitioner with considerable experience developing and executing human resources programmes for some of the key global creative and digital players. She is therefore very well positioned to align our talent acquisition strategy with our business objectives for the region and I am delighted to welcome her to the firm."

As well as overseeing the talent management function throughout Asia-Pacific, Teo will implement the firm's global HR stategies in the region, such as the H+K University global training platform.
