Natalie Siu, a Senior Director at FTI Consulting, has departed the global management consulting firm to join Sandpiper Communications as Head of its Hong Kong office. 

“I am excited to join Sandpiper’s team which brings together senior advisory with strong capabilities in research and integrated communications delivery. I look forward to working with our teams in Hong Kong and across Asia Pacific to help clients navigate the complex communication challenges they face,” said Siu.

Siu previously worked in the Strategic Communications division of FTI Consulting for 1,5 years, and before that, she worked for two communications agencies – Kreab and Edelman – and held two roles at the other side of the table, at insurance companies AIA and Zurich Insurance. 

“Natalie’s deep knowledge of the Greater China market and her international outlook, makes her ideally placed to advise our clients on strategies to inform audiences, create conversations and shape debates in our turbulent times,” said Emma Smith, Chief Executive Officer of Sandpiper Communications. 

Leading the firm’s Hong Kong operations, spanning business development, client relations, project delivery and internal development, Siu will work closely with Emma Smith and Sandpiper’s Chief Operating Officer Kelly Johnston.
