Based in Shanghai, Nikki Lin has been promoted to managing director of Fitch China. She joined Fitch as GM from Interbrand early last year.
Returning to the company, Simon Bell has been appointed MD for Fitch Singapore. He has more than 20 years’ experience working in Singapore, India and Australia in strategy, management and regional roles. He was previously Fitch India strategy director from 2009 to 2011.
Fitch Hong Kong has appointed Janice Siu as business director. More recently an independent consultant, she was previously MD at brand and communications agency Brash. She will report to Hong Kong MD Cally Williams.
Fitch global CEO David Blair says the company has had a strong presence in Asia for a long time.
“With the acquisition of the Hong Kong studio last year, we are now one of the biggest brand and design consultancies in Asia.”
