HONG KONG— David Ashton has swapped BritainThinks for Asian communications, taking up the role of account director in Hong Kong for Brunswick Research.

As part of the Brunswick PR group, Ashton (pictured) will work closely with colleagues in the company’s Beijing office.

Regional partner Tim Payne said: “We have already carried out a significant number of research-based communications projects for clients across a broad range of sectors in Asia and, with demand for this type of work continuing to grow, David’s timely arrival in Hong Kong will further enhance the high-quality service we offer to our clients.”

Ashton began his career at opinion polling firm Populus, before joining BritainThinks in January of this year.

His arrival at Brunswick Research follows that of Phil Riggins, who joined the firm as a partner in July.
