Press growth at Standard Life Investments
Standard Life Investments has hired its first press officer outside of the UK as it appoints Alvena So to manage its Asia comms from its base in Hong Kong.
Alvena has previously worked for Thomson Reuters financial and risk team, FTI Consulting, MSL Group and the Hong Kong Trade Development Council.
Press manager Sara Reed said: "Alvena has arrived at an exciting time for the business as we extend our global reach and continue our successful growth story.
"In Asia we now have a team of over thirty people, with a strong infrastructure in place. So it felt the right time to appoint someone in-house to drive communications, at the heart of the Asia business strategy.
"Standard Life Investments now has a truly global PR team of nine people, building our brand and managing strategic communications in the US, across Europe, Asia, Australasia and of course the UK – working in partnership with eleven PR agencies worldwide.”
