Behrmann reports to Adrian Warr, managing director of Edelman Hong Kong.
Warr said, "We're over the moon, having someone of Annouchka's caliber is going to make a big impression. More than just a brand guru, she has an instinctive understanding of how integrated communications can solve business challenges - she is the perfect addition to the family. We have brilliant people in the Brand Team and under Annouchka's leadership they are going to thrive."

In her previous role, Behrmann was managing director at MHP Communications in London, advising American Express, Unilever, BASF and L'Oréal. Recent campaigns include Shop Small, American Express's corporate social responsibility initiative, and the disruptive launch of Baby Dove which used artificial intelligence technology to create the image of the 'Perfect Mum'.
Behrmann said, "The pace, creativity and innovation in Asia is breathtaking, and Edelman has the foresight, talent and capabilities to deliver breakthrough creative work that has a transformational impact on complex business challenges. This is an incredibly exciting time to be working at Edelman Hong Kong."
