One of my favorite parts of this job is writing about the growth targets Copylab continues to meet and surpass, especially as it relates to our global expansion. That’s why I’m pleased to announce the appointment of Simon Lints as managing director of Copylab Asia and our newest member of the board of directors.
Simon comes to Copylab with a wealth of experience, having spent his career building successful international businesses in various sectors and geographies. Most recently he was CEO of Schroders’ wealth management business, based in Singapore, responsible for Southeast Asia. He has also worked for J.P. Morgan, Saudi International Bank, Strathclyde Pharmaceuticals, UBS, and Credit Suisse.
Simon is intimately familiar with Southeast Asia, having lived and worked in the region for the last 12 years. He was a founder member of the Singapore Scottish Business Association, is a proud GlobalScot and was recently appointed Scottish Government Trade Envoy to Singapore. Needless to say, we’re fortunate to bring aboard someone who not only shares the deep knowledge and expertise of Copylab’s services, but who also embodies the passion, ambition, and commitment inherent in every member of our team worldwide.
Simon will be joining Paul Lees, Copylab Asia’s senior writer and director of operations, who relocated from his home in Scotland five years ago to open our APAC offices. In that time, Paul has worked tirelessly to build a team and lay our foundation there while supporting our clients with his unmatched skills as a premier investment writer.
I’m proud that we continue to execute on our carefully planned international strategy. As a result of our global expansion, we’re able to further expand our capabilities to provide more comprehensive solutions to meet the mounting demands for content, while simultaneously allowing us to offer a truly holistic product suite for multinational companies. As globalization continues to be among the most prominent themes in the investment industry, developing our worldwide reach will further buttress Copylab’s ability to support the premier asset managers with whom we partner.
I’m excited to share this progress with you and look forward to announcing more in the future. In the meantime, please contact me, Simon, or anyone on our global team if you would like to learn more about how Copylab can support your worldwide communications and marketing efforts.
