A Dubai resident for almost a decade, Edward was previously Editor of CEO Middle East magazine and Pages Editor, International at Gulf News. He started his career in London, working at national broadsheet newspapers the Independent and the Daily Telegraph.

“I'm thrilled to be joining Hill+Knowlton Strategies at such an exciting time for digital across the Middle East,” said Edward. “There is already a world-class team in place doing some very exciting work across a range of clients and I look forward to helping to drive the business forward as a regional leader in digital strategy. With the high internet penetration across the GCC and wider region, and the increasing ubiquity of smartphones and tablets as access devices, integrating digital and traditional offline publishing mechanisms has become a cornerstone of any communications strategy. The increasing number and popularity of social media channels as forums for conversation and as consumer touch points also means that businesses need to ensure that a clear strategy is in place to monitor reputation management and oversee consistency of messaging.”

Edward will work across a broad mix of both Government and brand campaigns.
