CEO, Edelman North Asia
Bob Grove oversees Edelman in North Asia, with 10 offices across mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan and South Korea. Previously, Bob led Edelman’s Southeast Asia operations for eight years. Edelman Southeast Asia grew by ten times under his leadership.
During his tenure at Edelman, the firm has consistently been the fastest growing of the large PR agency networks in the region. Campaign Asia-Pacific named Edelman Singapore the “PR Agency of the Year” in 2010 and the Daniel J. Edelman China Group the “Greater China PR Agency of the Year” in 2012.
Prior to joining Edelman, Bob worked for a global business-to-business technology provider as the director of marketing in Asia Pacific, where he was eventually appointed managing director of its North Asia operations. Despite the bursting of the tech-bubble, he grew the North Asia business by 70 percent during that time.
