In her new role, Jenkins-Lee will spearhead our next phase of agency growth, drive client relationships and lead the team to consistently deliver communication campaigns that drive positive change and have tangible business impact.

She will work closely with Spurwing’s founder and CEO, Emma Thompson, to shape the business.

Commenting on the appointment, Thompson said, “I am thrilled to welcome someone of Emma’s calibre to the team. She brings solid communications counsel and experience evident through her impressive client tenure track record and the agency growth she has delivered in the region over the past decade. The breadth and depth of the work Emma has done in the technology sector, and many others, will be invaluable to strengthening our offering, leading our team of integrated experts and taking the business to the next level. We’re hugely excited to benefit from her expertise and fresh perspective as we prioritise growth in 2022 and beyond.”

From its headquarters in Singapore, and through its Global Health PR network, the team of 15 applies its specialist industry expertise to strategic corporate communications, medical communications and creative briefs.

“I wanted my next role to be something different, and the chance to lead an agency like Spurwing, which was seeking fresh thinking and operational expertise, is a brilliant, new opportunity for me. The agency’s journey so far is impressive and its mission is clear – to help clients motivate the people that matter. Spurwing has a great client roster that includes some of the most innovative healthcare and agribusinesses in Asia Pacific and the team is delivering fantastic campaigns that are truly inspiring change. I’m eager to bring my experience to current clients, and lead the team and agency through the next stage of growth.”
