Marketing and communications-focused management consultancy Observatory International has named Danny Hill, most recently regional head of sales operations at Infiniti, as managing partner for Greater China and Southeast Asia, based in Hong Kong.
The company said Hill will work alongside Sandy Burns, who holds the same job title, to support the consultancy’s continuing growth in Hong Kong, China and the wider region.
Hill has more than 15 years of client-side global and regional marketing experience. In his most recent role at Infiniti, where he spent over five years, he directed sales and marketing across Asia Pacific. Priot to Infiniti, he worked with Jaguar Land Rover and Volkswagen in the UK.
Observatory International stated in a release that Hill's extensive client-side marketing experience, combined with Burns's brand strategy and consulting experience, strengthens its position across the region.
"Danny will be a strong asset and a great leader of Observatory International within the region," co-founder Stuart Pocock said in a release. "His vast client-side experience and detailed knowledge of the local markets will be of huge value in supporting brands that are seeking to optimise their marketing resources.”
London-headquarterd Observatory International has APAC offices in Seoul and Tokyo in addition to Hong Kong. The Hong Kong office opened in 2018 after the company closed its Singapore operation, a move which saw the departure of long-serving managing partners Richard Bleasdale and Paul Davies.
