LONDON—Two European representatives from the Influence 100—The Holmes Report’s list of the world’s most influential in-house marketing and communications professionals—will be among the senior corporate communicators on this year’s SABRE Awards jury.
Pierre Goad (pictured), who is head of co-head of group communications at HSBC, and Hubertus Kuelps, group head of communications at UBS, will help to judge entries in Europe’s largest and most prestigious PR awards competition, which is currently seeking entries from across the region.
They will be joined by senior communicators from companies such as Adobe, Mondelez International, Nissan, PepsiCo, Procter & Gamble, Subway, and Telefonica
Goad returned to HSBC in mid-2011 to co-head group communications with Charles Naylor, after a year away from the bank as Zurich Financial Services’ global communications chief. Prior to that, he spent a decade at HSBC, working in numerous corporate strategy and PR roles in various markets.
Kuelps joined UBS as group head of communications earlier this year, taking on responsibility for communications and branding, based in Zurich, and reporting to CEO Ulrich Körner. He joined UBS from SAP, where he had been head of global communications for the past two years.
