HONG KONG - Hill+Knowlton Strategies has appointed Fiona Parker as its new technology regional leader for Asia-Pacific.

Parker returns to the agency where she began her career in Sydney, bringing back two decades’ experience in the industry. She joins from MHP Communications where she led the firm’s corporate practice.

Parker has also held in-house positions at Energis Communications in the UK and BT Global Services, running marketing programmes in Australasia.

“I’m honoured to take on this role and build on the success of H+K’s technology practice in both Hong Kong and the region,” she said. “It’s an exciting time to work in tech communication in Asia, not just from an innovation perspective, but also in terms of the benefits and opportunities brought to both consumers and businesses everywhere by ongoing technological disruption.”

Parker has a strong track record of advising tech clients on strategic communications and media relations, including companies such as Intel, Canon, Workday and Nokia.

She will report to Sara Gourlay, who was previously covering the role in conjunction with her position as global technology practice director.

“I’m delighted to welcome Fiona back to the H+K family,” Gourlay said. “As an agency, we have a rich history in the technology sector and Fiona will play a pivotal role in our ongoing focus on growing the tech practice in Asia Pacific. I know she’s going to bring a lot of energy and drive to the team.”
