    Pully Chau Makes the Move from Cheil to Edelman

    Edelman is bringing Pully Chau on board as the agency’s President for Greater China. She will be tasked with advancing the network’s agenda in communication and marketing.

    Chau will report to Stephen Kehoe, Edelman’s President and CEO for Asia-Pacific and will lead the charge on enhancing the agency’s existing offerings and launching new specialist capabilities to fuel growth.

    “Pully is known in the industry as a game-changer,” said Kehoe.

    “She is the right partner to build Edelman’s future in these unique, high-growth markets that are evolving ahead of the curve. She is a proven business driver, having led large agencies and won substantial client remits at the highest level. Pully is very well connected across Greater China and will be a force multiplier for Edelman in the region,” Kehoe added.

    The heads of Edelman’s offices across mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taipei – Mark Wang, Adrian Warr, and Alexandra Pao – will report to Chau.

    “Nothing beats the excitement of joining the largest PR agency in their quest to redefine the game,” said Chau on her new role.

    “With a unified mission to drive fast growth through integration, and by empowering the company’s diverse team of high-flying talent, we are going to take the industry in a new direction.”

    Chau has more than 33 years of agency leadership experience and most recently served as Cheil’s Group CEO for Greater China, a role she was promoted to in 2017 after joining as the group’s first woman COO in 2015.
