    H+K Australia Appoints Amelia Tipping as Managing Director

    Hill+Knowlton Strategies has appointed Amelia Tipping as Managing Director of its Australia operation. Based in Sydney, and reporting to HS Chung, President, H+K Asia, Tipping will join H+K Asia’s senior leadership team with a focus on driving local expertise and cross-market collaboration to deliver broader capabilities for clients and accelerate business growth across the region.

    Tipping brings more than 18 years of integrated agency leadership and campaign experience to the role of Managing Director. Effective October 1st, she will replace Mandy Galmes who is leaving the agency after three years as CEO.

    Tipping’s appointment follows a raft of team hires and key promotions in 2021 in response to new client wins and diversification of services.


    Elevating regional Public Affairs capabilities, Anna O’Sullivan has been promoted to Managing Partner, Strategic Communications and Public Affairs to lead all strategic communications and public affairs opportunities across Asia.

    Strengthening technology communications capabilities, Mark Lensyzyn will step up into the role of Asia Technology Practice Lead and LG-One Network Director to elevate the growth of this sector across the region.

    Marcha Van Den Heuvel has been promoted to Business Director and will take on the increased responsibility of managing H+K Australia’s business development function alongside the Australia leadership team.


    “I’m incredibly fortunate to have worked with some of the best in the business throughout my career. Most recently, working with Mandy, and as part of both the H+K and WPP AUNZ network, I have been able to help reshape the agencies’ offerings,” said Tipping.

    “We have found our sweet spot, partnering with clients who require both senior, strategic counsel and creative content solutions. I am really excited for the opportunity to lead the business and our continued transformation.”
