City & Corporate: Finsbury nabs FD Asia head

RLM Finsbury, the financial agency created by the merger of Finsbury and Robinson Lerer and Montgomery, has recruited FD's Asian head to lead its new Hong Kong office.

Alastair Hetherington will lead the agency's Asian operation from Hong Kong, with further offices in Singapore and Beijing in the pipeline.

Roland Rudd, chairman of RLM Finsbury, commented: 'Our clients are increasingly looking to invest and raise capital in Asia, and Asian corporations are becoming more global.'

Hetherington's past client experience includes the restructuring of AIG, the largest ever Hong Kong IPO with AIA and work for New York Mellon, China Unicom and Galaxy Entertainment.

Hetherington said: 'Asia is crying out for exactly this level of strategic comms advice as its economies expand apace.'
