HONG KONG—Judges from major multinational companies—including Facebook, HP, McDonald’s, Nissan, Prudential, and Visa—are among the judges in this year’s Asia-Pacific SABRE Awards competition.

The client-side judges who will evaluate work from across the region include:

  • Alice Ridgway, senior manager of corporate communications at Citrix in Australia
  • Carson Dalton, head of communications at Facebook India
  • Devashish Dasgupta, director of corporate affairs, AB InBev India
  • Fiona Liao, chief brand officer at Prudential Assurance Malaysia

  • Jonathan Kushner, senior corporate and public affairs executive, McDonald’s Japan
  • Stephen Forshaw, managing director Australia and New Zealand, Temasek
  • Zoe Hibbert (pictured), head of corporate relations for Visa, Singapore

“It’s important for the SABRE Awards competition to enlist senior in-house communicators, because these are the people who know exactly the kind of work that clients are looking for,” says Paul Holmes, who chairs the SABRE jury. “They have a focus on the kind of work that drives brand performance, corporate reputation, and ultimately business results.”
