Weber Shandwick has promoted Juny Lee and Seikyu Hong to joint general managers of the firm’s Korean business and Campbell Hanley to general manager of the firm’s Japanese business. All promotions are effective immediately.
Under the executive leadership of Tyler Kim, managing director, North Asia (excluding China), Lee and Hong will share operational, client experience and overall market leadership of the firm’s office based in Seoul. In his new role as general manager, Hanley will continue to strengthen the capabilities and service offering of the Japanese business.
“Campbell, Juny and Seikyu have all grown significantly as leaders and these promotions are very well deserved,” said Tyler Kim. “Each one has been integral to the success of our Japanese and Korean operations and I am grateful for their support to help me continue to drive our business not only in North Asia, but also across the region.”

Recognised as one of the industry’s most influential digital communications specialists, Lee will be responsible for driving operational excellence and overseeing the employee experience framework.
