    Shawn Balakrishnan Named Director for Southeast Asia at Hume Brophy

    Communications consultancy Hume Brophy has named Shawn Balakrishnan Director for its Southeast Asia operations.

    Balakrishnan brings nearly two decades of experience to the table.

    He will be working with leadership across the network to develop new products, drive growth opportunities and provide strategic counsel to a host of clients.

    He joins Hume Brophy after previously serving as market leader for Singapore and Southeast Asia at Burson Cohn & Wolfe. Prior to joining BCW in 2018, he was the general manager of The Hoffman Agency’s Singapore office.

    “Equipped with integrated communications skillsets and employee-first cultural leadership, Balakrishnan represents the kind of change-maker we embrace at Hume Brophy to help us drive our forward-thinking regional growth strategy,” said Hume Brophy CEO, Conall McDevitt.

    “He brings wide-ranging expertise and experience to our growing team in Southeast Asia and will also play a critical role as a member of our global leadership team.”

    Balakrishnan fills the gap left by Asia Pacific Managing Director Carolyn Camoens who departed the firm after managing Hume Brophy’s regional presence out of Singapore since 2018.

    “The world continues to go through unprecedented transformation, and as these changes continue to unfold, organizations in a hybrid world must develop the mental agility, clarity, and dexterity to ride its oncoming waves,” added Balakrishnan.

    “In our industry, we understand how organizations communicate can create impact and catalyze positive change, and Hume Brophy remains well-positioned to navigate our clients in and around business continuity, and towards sustainable long-term success.”
