Case Studies

The corporate affairs and communications recruitment specialists at tml Partners have sourced a Senior Director, Corporate Communications, for Prudential plc in Hong Kong.

Prudential plc is a global financial services company, offering insurance, asset management, and financial products. Founded in 1848, it operates in Asia, the US, and the UK, serving millions with retirement, investment, and protection solutions.

The Challenge:

Prudential recently relocated its global headquarters from London to Hong Kong, requiring a transition in senior leadership. Prudential welcomed a new CEO whilst going through changes to its international corporate structure.

The Solution:

Tom Morgan Harris, Head of International Corporate Affairs and Kamillah Ansari, Executive Researcher at tml Partners partnered with Prudential plc on their new Senior Director, Corporate Communications hire in Hong Kong. Tom has worked on senior international communications hires for the last 10 years and is armed with an extensive global communications network. Their combined specialist expertise across corporate affairs in the insurance and financial services sector enabled them to partner with Prudential’s UK and APAC leadership team to complete the search – working closely with the Global Senior Director of Corporate Communications, Simon Kutner and other members of the global team.

Sophie Sophaon emerged as the ideal fit, seamlessly integrating into the role and thriving in the new and dynamic environment. With 15+ years of agency experience in building and leading strategic communications across insurance and professional services, it became immediately apparent Sophie would be perfectly matched to the Senior Director of Corporate Communications at Prudential where she would continue to drive corporate narrative, brand and reputation with a holistic and forward-thinking approach. 

Sophie shared her positive experience with the team at tml: “Tom and Kamillah demonstrated an unparalleled level of expertise, professionalism, and unwavering support throughout the entire process, with weekly catch up and check ins. The process had its complexities, as any career transition does, but I was fortunately guided through every challenge with grace and knowing it was led in my interest. I am excited to be joining Prudential at this point of transition and personally for this exciting move inhouse.”
