Specialist Counsel - Government Affairs Appointments
Senior government affairs appointments in emerging markets like Asia remain a challenge for many companies. Candidates with strong track records in developed markets often fail to meet expectations. Many candidates are not able to adjust to the lack of transparency and unpredictability of the political and media environments. Others find it difficult to work with very limited resources in a fast-changing and diverse environment.
Socius Consulting provides a unique service to companies seeking to boost their government affairs capabilities in Asia. Socius is able to draw on counsel from an experienced practitioner to assess a candidate's suitability for a role from a technical perspective, and the necessary skills and qualities for government affairs work in developing markets.
Our specialist advisor has over 16 years of experience in government relations operating in both consulting and in-house capacities across the Asia Pacific. His mix of experience across several disciplines of government affairs work, in both developed and developing country settings, enables Socius to provide an additional vetting of candidates to help clients avoid costly and inappropriate appointments in a niche and specialized function.
