Redhill further expands APAC footprint with office in South Korea
Redhill, the Singapore-headquartered, full-service global communications agency, today announced that it has opened a new office in Seoul, South Korea as part of its expansion in Asia-Pacific.
Julia Jisun Lee has been appointed to lead Redhill Korea. She joins Redhill from Mediau Corp., a Seoul-based accelerator for Korean startups. She is joined by Mihyun Kim as managing director. Mihyun’s brand experience includes top tier international multinationals across sectors and industries including BlackRock, Uber, ING Bank, Intel, Samsung Electronics, and Prada. Julia and Mihyun bring 55 years of combined experience in public relations, social media, government relations, branding, investor relations, and financial PR.
"I am very pleased to be a member of Redhill, which provides efficient and flexible communication in accordance with an ever-changing market. Tapping on Redhill's strong network and expertise in the global market, Redhill Korea aims to be a success partner for companies expanding their global business," said Julia Jisun Lee, Chief Strategy Officer, Redhill Korea.
Redhill marked its six-year anniversary in October 2020, celebrating a positive financial year despite the impact of COVID-19 on businesses globally. Over the last 6 months, Redhill signed 35 new clients and hired 13 account servicing team members. The agency also earlier announced its new office in Abu Dhabi.
“Our entry into South Korea marks a milestone in the growth of Redhill in becoming a global agency with deep Asian roots,” said Jacob Puthenparambil, CEO, Redhill. “We are excited to be working with Julia and Mihyun to bring Redhill’s world-class offering to help South Korean companies succeed globally, as well as global companies looking to raise brand awareness in South Korea.”
Over the past three and a half years, Redhill has been recognised by The Holmes Report as the 2017 Asia-Pacific New PR Agency of the Year, named the third fastest-growing agency in the world in 2019, and the 13th fastest growing agency in the world in 2020.
