Morgan has served as executive vice president and chief operating officer in Asia for the last 10 months. He will report to Global Chairman Jack Martin and oversee nearly 500 people in 14 offices around the region.

He previously served a dual role as chief operating officer and managing director of the Hong Kong office. A specialist in corporate and government affairs, financial communications, integrated marketing, issues/crisis management and media/crisis/presentation training, Morgan also has a long tenure as Greater China director for GolinHarris on his CV.

Heimowitz will continue as a senior advisor to assist with the transition.

“[Morgan] is a communications veteran with more than a decade of experience managing agencies across Asia Pacific,” Martin said, adding that the agency thanks Heimowitz for making H+K the "vibrant, award-winning agency it is today".

Morgan said he looks forward to leading the firm toward a "period of sustained growth in the years to come, as well as further sophistication of our services”.
