SINGAPORE, 7 October 2021 – Hill+Knowlton Strategies (H+K), one of the world’s leading global communications companies, has expanded Justin Then’s role within H+K Asia’s senior leadership team to CEO of H+K Singapore in addition to Lumos H+K Malaysia.
Reporting to HS Chung, President for H+K Asia, Then will oversee the running of H+K’s Singapore and Malaysia operations, focusing on driving cross- market collaboration to accelerate business growth across the region. Then’s appointment, which will take effect November 1, follows on from the recent strengthening of H+K Australia’s leadership team where Amelia Tipping was promoted to Managing Director along with a series of key promotions across Asia.
“Over the past decade we have established H+K as a creative force in the Malaysian PR market. I’m honoured to take on this expanded leadership role to further accelerate our Asia offering,” said Then. “The opportunity for increased synergy between our Singapore and Malaysia offices will deliver an unmatched competitive proposition in the market and I’m looking forward to working with both teams and our leadership to continue to deliver innovative work for our clients across Asia.”
Then has led Lumos H+K Malaysia since merging his agency, Lumos PR with H+K Malaysia in 2019. Prior to founding Lumos PR, Then was Managing Director of H+K Malaysia where he provided senior counsel to regional clients from diverse sectors including oil and gas, technology and financial services. He previously headed the Technology Practice at a local boutique agency where he led a team which serviced clients such as Dell, Intel, Microsoft, Hitachi Data Systems and Alcatel Lucent.
