Ginny Wilmerding, who was a Brunswick Group partner in Hong Kong, has joined Finsbury in that city as the WPP unit bolsters its capabilities in China.
Fluent in conversational Mandarin and written Chinese, she has spent 17 years in Hong Kong and China, handling technology, capital markets, ESG and board governance matters.
Wilmerding chairs the Asia advisory council of Princeton in Asia and is author of the book, "Smart Women and Small Business: How to Make the Leap from Corporate Careers to the Right Small Enterprise."
At Finsbury, she will advise Hong Kong, mainland China and US clients on regional/cross-border transactions, governance, geopolitics, PA, reputation management, ESG and activist issues.
Finsbury is on target to merge with The Glover Park Group and Hering Schuppener to form a global network with more than 700 staffers.
“With our merger next year and ambitious plans for Asia, Ginny and the rest of the Asia team will play a central role in developing our global business,” said Finsbury founder/chairman Roland Rudd.
