PR agency Weber Shandwick has hired Christina Cheang as chairman of its Singapore operation.

Cheang moves after a five year term at Golin Harris, where she was regional managing director, Singapore and Southeast Asia.

Weber’s MD Vanessa Ho Nikolovski will now run the Singapore office day to day, with former co-MD Margaret Cunico taking the role of president emeritus.

Both Cheang and Ho Nikolovski will report to vice-chairman Baxter Jolly, effective 1 December.

At Golin Harris, Cheang has been replaced by Tarun Deo, who joined the agency six months ago from Fleishman-Hillard.

“As we welcome Christina to the Weber Shandwick team, this is clearly an exciting time for us in Singapore. Vanessa and Margaret have done an exceptional job co-leading the team over the past two years, but their contributions to Weber Shandwick have actually spanned decades,” said Weber Shandwick Asia Pacific chairman Tim Sutton.

“It’s a testament to Margaret’s dedication that, after over two decades with the firm, she is committed to continuing her work in supporting our key clients. Vanessa’s strengths in driving successful results for both the firm and our clients will serve her well as she takes on full leadership responsibilities.”
