Lisa MacMillan

Associate Director, Financial and Professional Services Communications

My background

I have been living and working in Asia for 15 years and originally joined VMAGROUP’s Singapore office in 2014, subsequently moving to Hong Kong to head up the operations in Asia. In 2019, I returned to the UK taking on an Associate Director role in the London office focusing on executive searches in the Financial Services, Professional Services and Investor Relations sectors.

My MBA, background as a communications practitioner working both agency and client side, and 14 years working in search and selection has helped me to fully understand the roles I am headhunting for.

I have regularly partnered with global industry bodies such as IABC and APACD to host executive events and roundtables to share best practice and keep abreast of latest industry trends. 

My specialisms 

Having built a global network of senior communications and marketing professionals and long-standing client relationships, I will continue to provide search and selection services for senior roles throughout Asia, in addition to my executive searches for the UK Financial and Professional Services Communications roles.  

My recent projects 

Some of the roles I have recently filled include:

  • Global Head of Communications, APAC at a Financial Services Company 
  • Head of Marcomms, APAC at a Financial Services Company
  • VP, Internal Communications at a Professional Services Company
  • Head of Content, Asia at a Financial Services Company
  • Director of Public Affairs at a Pharmaceutical​
