Investment bank ING Barings has poached a director of Shandwick’s

Hong Kong office to beef up its corporate affairs efforts in the

region.



Eddie Naylor, who will take the title head of corporate affairs, Asia,

joined the bank this week.



He will report to Jeremy Palmer, head of the Asia Pacific region, as

well as the London-based head of corporate communications worldwide

Peter Krijgsman.



The post is a new one and is part of ING Barings’ increasing focus on

corporate communications.



Naylor will be responsible for media and internal relations across Asia,

including India and Japan.



He spent four years at Shandwick, where he covered the corporate and

financial field, investor relations and banking.



’I wanted to get into an in-house position to really get my teeth into

one organisation,’ said Naylor.



He denied that the bank’s business in the region would be adversely

affected by the hand over of Hong Kong to the Chinese at the end of

June.
