Key contacts

There are several key contacts who lead, direct or manage our strategic activities in South East Asia.

The Regional Team for Southeast Asia is based across two sites with Audrey Kon, the Regional Director, located in our Representative Office in Singapore, and the rest of the team based in Edinburgh.

About the Representative Office

Our centre in Singapore was launched in 2017. It was established to help us shape our future activities in Singapore, scope opportunities and to further develop our alumni network. From there, Audrey collaborates with the International Dean, David Weller, to devise an engagement plan for the Region.

Our student recruitment work in Southeast Asia and Australasia is not connected to the Representative Office and is run entirely from Edinburgh by Jenny Thacker and Louise Zeelenberg, our two Regional Managers for Southeast Asia.
