FleishmanHillard has appointed Joel Weiden as senior vice president and head of its corporate, finance and industry team in Singapore.
Previously co-founder of the Communications Collective in Vietnam, Weiden was the general manager of Weber Shandwick Thailand and senior director of editorial services at Nielsen in both Singapore and New York.
A graduate of George Washington University, Weiden has two decades of corporate reputation and financial communications experience across Southeast Asia and the United States.
Beth Boswell, managing director, of FleishmanHillard Southeast Asia has said, “The depth of his corporate, financial and issues experience – combined with his entrepreneurial spirit – makes him a highly effective counsellor and team leader. Having worked both in-house and with agencies, he recognises how to optimise communications and maximise business for both. We are thrilled to welcome him to our growing team.”
FleishmanHillard’s global crisis management lead, Brian West, is also based in Singapore, which Weiden has identified as a promising synergy.
