SINGAPORE--FleishmanHillard veteran Beth Boswell has stepped into the firm's Southeast Asia leadership role, which has been vacant for more than a year.

Boswell has held a variety of roles during her 18-year career at Fleishman-Hillard. Most recently she was Asia-Pacific MD of strategic planning, based in New Delhi, but has now relocated to Singapore.

She succeeds Tarun Deo, who departed FH one year ago and has since joined GolinHarris to head Southeast Asia.

In addition, FH has moved to bolster its Southeast Asia leadership by promoting two market heads to partner level: Cosette Romero, SVP and GM of the firm's Manila office, and Louisa Tuhatu, who holds the same responsibilities for the Jakarta operation.
