SINGAPORE— Brand and communications research agency Hall & Partners has appointed Hilary Lee as managing partner to lead its new office in Singapore.

Lee (pictured) rejoins the firm after spending 12 years with Kantar, where she was most recently regional client director for the Asia Pacific region. In a prior stint with Hall & Partners, Lee was a director in New York.

Vanella Jackson, Hall & Partners’ worldwide CEO, said: “Hilary is an inspirational leader, with tremendous experience of running strategic global research in the region.

“She will help bring our new thinking on brand engagement and new tools, including our new Engager model to all clients in the region, delivering locally, regionally and globally.”

Jackson said Lee would work closely with Kim Beck, head of the firm’s Shanghai office, to deliver services at a regional level.
