PR frim Hill+Knowlton Strategies (H+K) has appointed Amelia Tipping as managing director of its Australian operations.
Amelia (Millie) Tipping will focus on driving local expertise and cross-market collaboration to deliver broader capabilities for clients and accelerate business growth across the region.
Tipping brings more than 18 years of integrated agency leadership and campaign experience to the role of managing director. She will continue to shape the agency’s purpose-led communications offering and will deliver PR and content publishing strategies alongside a local and regional team of world class Consumer, Technology, Public Affairs, and Corporate Reputation specialists.
Effective 1 October 2021, Tipping will replace Mandy Galmes, who is leaving the agency after three years as CEO to pursue a new opportunity.

Millie Tipping said: “I’m incredibly fortunate to have worked with some of the best in the business throughout my career. Most recently, working with Mandy, and as part of both the H+K and WPP AUNZ network, I have been able to help reshape the agencies’ offerings.”
“We have found our sweet spot, partnering with clients who require both senior, strategic counsel and creative content solutions. I am really excited for the opportunity to lead the business and our continued transformation.”
HS Chung, president, H+K Asia, said: “We thank Mandy for her contribution to H+K both locally and globally. She has been the driving force behind the transformation and growth of H+K Australia over the past three years.”
“I am also thrilled to see our colleagues grow to take on leading roles at H+K. Having worked directly with Amelia, Anna, Mark and Marcha, I am confident their commitment, drive and skills will add immense value to our clients in their evolving requirements, accelerate the growth of our people and our business both locally and across the region,” said Chung.
