Montieth SPRG hires a new Director for the APAC region

Montieth SPRG hires a new Director for the APAC region

Montieth SPRG is proud to announce the appointment of Leslie Fung as Director.  Leslie will lead the agency’s day-to-day activities and drive its continued expansion in APAC.

Leslie has over 20 years of Public Relations expertise working across a variety of disciplines from investor relations to corporate affairs and strategic communications. He was latterly General Manager for a listed financial communications group in Hong Kong. A thoroughly accomplished team-player and leader, Leslie has extensive experience working with listed companies in Hong Kong and with family-owned enterprises.

Since launching in February 2021, Montieth SPRG has attracted global organizations who see the value of the agency’s integrated, flexible, efficient cross-border PR services and solutions. Those clients also work with partner agency M&Co in North America and UK/EMEA.

Our Co-Founder, Montieth Illingworth says “Leslie has a deep understanding of APAC’s media markets and knows how to build brand awareness for companies across sectors. His grasp of the regional and cultural nuances makes Leslie highly valuable to our clients and I’m proud that he’s joined our global team to accelerate our growth even faster.”

Richard Tsang, Co-Founder adds that “companies with little or no presence in APAC continue to see the attraction of the region’s markets. How to build a corporate profile and leverage media and marketing activity for commercial ends remains a challenge for many such firms. Montieth SPRG helps non-APAC headquartered firms overcome those challenges and Leslie’s appointment adds to the weight of senior counsel that the agency can offer.”

Leslie notes “Having led both agency and in-house teams for many years I’m relishing the opportunity to build on Montieth SPRG’s fantastic start in the Hong Kong and wider APAC money and media markets. There is huge opportunity to offer something unique for firms needing PR support in the region; namely integrated and impactful media relations counsel and support on a global scale.”
