H+K appoints Dutch financial practice lead
Hill+Knowlton Strategies has appointed Sabine Post-de Jong, previously a director in its financial and corporate comms division, as practice leader of its Amsterdam-based Financial + M&A unit.
She takes over from Frans van der Grint, who will continue in his role as European practice director at Hill+Knowlton Strategies – a position which he has held since 2012.
Post-de Jong joined H+K in May 2011, and prior to that worked at global distribution company TNT and private equity house Gilde Buy Out Partners.
Her experience covers private equity, investor relations and corporate strategy.
She said: “Practice leader at Hill+Knowlton Strategies is a coveted role. Given our very strong market position, combined with the new opportunities in the offing, I happily accepted the request to take over this responsibility.”
Van der Grint added: “Sabine is an exceptional professional, with a recognized place in the market. There are many benefits for Hill+Knowlton Strategies in Sabine taking over the lead.
“People who know me know that for me, seven or eight years is the limit in a leadership role and that I’m happy to hand things over at that stage.”
