SINGAPORE—Weber Shandwick has expanded its Asia-Pacific public affairs practice from China to Southeast Asia with the relocation of senior vice president Brad Jaffe from Beijing to Singapore.


The practice was established by executive vice president John Russell, who moved to Beijing at the end of 2005, after previously having been responsible for Weber Shandwick’s public affairs operation in Brussels. Since then, the practice has grown to encompass local and Asia-Pacific regional public and regulatory affairs, issues management and high-end strategic consultancy assignments.

Jaffe, who brings more than a decade of public affairs and issues management experience in both the United States and Asia, will manage some of the firm’s multi-country assignments from Singapore as well as developing a full public affairs practice in the Southeast Asia region and extending it as far as Australia.

In a related development, Robert Magyar, senior vice president in Weber Shandwick’s Tokyo office, is moving to Beijing to join the public affairs team led by Russell.
