Cognito boosts senior leadership team in APAC

Cognito, the specialist integrated communications and marketing firm for the financial services industry, has promoted Charlie Morrow (pictured) and Dan Bradley to Director with immediate effect. Mr Bradley has also been appointed as Head of Hong Kong as the agency continues to expand regionally in APAC.

Based in Singapore, Mr Morrow has worked for Cognito for close to a decade, relocating to the region in December 2016 to bolster its growth and development in that market. Working with traditional financial, professional services and FinTech clients, he primarily focuses on raising the profiles of companies across ASEAN blending a range of media strategies and tactics.

Assuming the role of Head of Hong Kong as well as Director, Mr Bradley has already been instrumental in launching and building up Cognito’s Hong Kong business since he joined last year. With almost 15 years’ experience in financial services communications, Dan was previously PR Director at Thomson Reuters and SunGard Financial Systems, where he helped build the company’s profile in target growth markets. He had previously worked for leading PR agencies in London focusing on B2B corporate, financial PR and investor relations.

Darrell Wright, Managing Director, APAC, Cognito commented, “Charlie and Dan have been instrumental in building the business significantly since they joined the firm. They are real assets to our clients and the agency, and we look forward many more years of success to come as we continue to grow the business in Asia Pacific.”
