Brunswick Group, the global financial and corporate communications firm, has announced a new senior advisor based in Hong Kong.
Tim Freshwater brings over four decades of experience in the legal and banking industries and most recently served as vice chairman of Goldman Sachs (Asia). He remains an advisory director at Goldman and also sits on several boards including Hong Kong Exchanges & Clearing and Swire Pacific. He also held senior roles at international law firms Slaughter & May and Jardine Fleming.
The appointments complements Brunswick's ongoing Asia expansion drive, which will see it open its fifth Asian office in India by the first quarter of 2014, or just shortly after opening a branch in Singapore in the summer. Leading the India push is Khozem Merchant, former president at Pearson India, who will be joined by Pradeep Rajasekharan, a director with Brunswick in London and Dubai for the past two years.
Besides Singapore, Hong Kong and, soon, India, Brunswick's other Asia offices are in Beijing and Shanghai.
