November 16, 2022 – Brunswick Group, the world’s leading critical issues advisory firm, today announced that Sunitha Chalam has been appointed Head of the Singapore Office, effective January 1, 2023. After four years as Head of the Singapore Office, Will Carnwath becomes Co-Lead of the firm’s Healthcare and Life Sciences sector team.  

Since opening in 2013, the Singapore office has been a critical part of the firm’s global network and an important base from which to support clients across Southeast Asia. The Singapore team delivers the full breadth of Brunswick’s capabilities to clients across sectors and the ASEAN countries.

Neal Wolin, Chief Executive Officer, said: “Since re-joining the office from Hong Kong earlier this year, Sunitha has played a key role in developing our capabilities in Singapore further and broadening our presence in Southeast Asia. Her wide-ranging client experience, deep knowledge of the Asia-Pacific market and strong connectivity to colleagues across the firm position her extremely well to lead the Singapore office in its next phase of growth.

“Will joined Brunswick in London in 2009 and has been an important member of our Singapore office since 2013. Since becoming Office Head in 2019, he has demonstrated outstanding leadership, growing the Singapore office in both size and capability. I look forward to working with Will in his new role as Co-Lead of our Healthcare and Life Sciences sector, where we believe there is significant opportunity to pursue.”
