The sub-region includes two of Edelman’s fastest growing markets globally (India and the UAE), as well as the company’s first presence in Africa (South Africa). His mandate includes planning and executing the expansion of Edelman’s regional presence.

In his previous role, Rob was managing director of Edelman India, where he expanded the operation from 50 staff in two offices to over 350 in eight fully-owned offices, becoming the largest firm by revenue in the market.
