Asia House has appointed a Head of Stakeholder Engagement as it expands into new sectors and manages increasing client demand.
Sarah King (née Fetherston-Dilke), who has 10 years of experience working with multinational companies across the financial services, transport, pharmaceutical and leisure industries, joined Asia House in February.
As Head of Stakeholder Engagement, Sarah will work closely with Asia House’s Corporate Members and expanding client base – including FTSE100 businesses from a wide range of sectors – to ensure Asia House’s engagement activities continue to add value and meet members’ strategic aims.
Sarah was hired from Instinctif Partners’ Public Policy practice, where she served as Associate Partner supporting highly-regulated and innovative firms in their interaction with Government. Previously, she provided corporate communication and public affairs support to a large trade association, having started her career as a political researcher in the UK’s House of Commons.
“Asia House is unique in terms of its network and in-house expertise on trade, investment and policy in Asia,” Sarah said. “With global trade facing an array of challenges and uncertainties, there is more of a need than ever for businesses to access crucial insights and information to make the right decisions.
“Helping clients to overcome their challenges is at the heart of what Asia House does, and I’m looking forward to contributing to this important work.”
As well as ensuring Corporate Members and clients get the most from Asia House, Sarah will also contribute to Asia House Advisory – the organisation’s consultancy arm.
Charlie Humphreys, Director of Corporate Affairs at Asia House, said: “Asia House is going through an exciting stage of development as we see demand for insights on Asian markets increase and our network of senior decision-makers from around the world grow.
“With her extensive experience across a range sectors, Sarah will be instrumental in helping Corporate Members, clients and partners to achieve their business aims, especially as we elevate our work in new areas such as climate change and the digital revolution.”
