London-based public relations and social media firm W has tapped Kiranjeet Kaur to head its new office in Malaysia that kicked-off earlier this month.
Kiranjeet moves from Hilton Malaysia where she was the PR manager. Prior to that, she was at Cohn & Wolfe Malaysia where she ran consumer accounts from Nestlé to Dulux.
She is now the account director at Kuala Lumpur office, W’s fifth global office and its second in the region after starting operations in Singapore in August 2015.
“I am excited to have joined W Communications KL and am very grateful to both Warren Johnson, W’s founder and Annabel Fox the Group Managing Director of APAC for the opportunity to play an integral role in building the brand here in Malaysia,” she told Asia Samachar in a text.
The Malaysian team will offer a combined specialism in the consumer, travel, lifestyle, digital and corporate space – offering a full PR and digital service to local businesses as well as regional support to global brands, alongside the Singapore office.
Kiranjeet, who hails from Kuala Lumpur, is the daughter of the famed Malaysian former national footballer Santokh Singh and Taljit Kaur. She has two younger brothers Sukhveer Singh and Rajveer Singh.
