David Nugent

Twenty years of Asia Pacific in-house, agency and independent advisory/consultant roles in strategic corporate communications, public affairs, investor, government and stakeholder relations, with emphasis on Southeast Asia and Greater China.

Most recently, I managed multiple integrated communications campaigns across Asia for AECOM, the global Fortune 200 infrastructure provider. My efforts to engage leading journalists, policy makers and opinion-leaders on behalf of the firm’s diverse business lines resulted in achieving commanding shares of voice and visibility in multiple key growth markets across Greater China and Southeast Asia in just sixteen months.

A literal product of both East and West, my professional career began in public affairs for Asian governments and trade associations in Washington DC, then to New York City where I did investor relations for NYSE and NASDAQ-listed technology, basic industry and manufacturing companies. Since returning to Asia, I've worked for global and regional multinationals, conglomerates, sovereign, start-up and private clients.
