Singapore – Edelman in Singapore has appointed Amanda Koh as its newest head of technology. In her new role, she will be building on the agency’s strong technology sector capability and expertise. She will report to Julia Wei, CEO of Edelman Singapore.
Koh returns to Edelman after seven years in-house, and most recently comes from being the Asia Pacific & Middle East Head of Marketing and Communications at Vodafone. She had previously spent nine years at Edelman – both in Singapore and Sydney. In this time, she was responsible for leading key client relationships across Edelman’s spectrum of offerings, from media relations to content and digital.
Speaking on her appointment, she said, “Edelman was the place where I fostered my love of technology, especially its far-reaching impact on societies, workplaces and business. It is therefore incredibly exciting to get the opportunity to return and lead the growth of Edelman’s technology sector, working technology companies and leaders to deliver on people’s expectations for societal impact and responsible leadership.”
Meanwhile, Wei commented, “I am thrilled to have Amanda return to Edelman to lead our teams in a very pivotal moment in time for the technology sector, amidst increased expectations for technology leaders to communicate the societal impact of innovation and address concerns on issues like data privacy and automation to build trust.”
She added, “Amanda will be instrumental in Edelman Singapore’s next chapter of growth and innovation – both for our culture and our capabilities, as we continue to bolster sector specialism in areas like technology.”
Recent Edelman appointments in the APAC region include those in the integrated creative team in Hong Kong, health leadership appointments in APAC, and the appointment of Warren Fernandez as CEO for APAC.
