Artemis Associates has appointed former Bloomberg TV Anchor John Dawson as a director in Hong Kong.
Dawson joins Artemis after a 20 year career at Bloomberg Television, where he was the prime-time anchor in Europe and Asia, interviewing world leaders in industry and politics.
He is also an experienced conference moderator/speaker, having chaired numerous panels at conferences across Asia and Europe, including the World Economic Forum in Davos and the EU, IMF and OPEC meetings.
His interviews with General Electric’s Jack Welch and BP’s Lord Browne won him Bloomberg’s sole nominations for the U.K. Business Journalist of the Year award. As a writer, his work featured regularly on the Bloomberg newswire and in publications around the world, including the IHT, Financial Times and Business Week.
He graduated from the University of London with a Bachelor’s Degree in English & Classics. He moved to Hong Kong from London in October 2010.
Diana Footitt, CEO of Artemis Associates, said: "Artemis has been expanding this year, growing our retained client base and engaging new talent to ensure that all of our clients continue to receive the outstanding service they have come to expect from our firm. We have won a number of exciting mandates in recent months and are absolutely thrilled that John has agreed to join our director team. John brings fabulous experience from his 20 years with Bloomberg and we are excited to already see the strong impact that he is having with our existing and potential clients."
Dawson will be involved in client origination and strategic counsel, providing a range of advice spanning reputation management, media relations, crisis communications, transaction communications and investor relations.
