Origins

Taylor Bennett Heyman is an executive search firm exclusively focused on corporate communications, government affairs and investor relations roles with a broad reach across all industries and geographies. Based in Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia, the firm was launched in 2013 to work with global clients needing assistance with Asia Pacific and Australasia-based roles and regionally-based candidates looking globally at their next career move.

Taylor Bennett Heyman brings together market-leading communications executive search specialists, Taylor Bennett and Heyman Associates. Building on their existing presence in London, New York and San Francisco, both companies have formalised their operations in Asia Pacific and Australasia through Taylor Bennett Heyman, with offices in Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia.

Taylor Bennett and Heyman Associates have a combined experience of almost 60 years placing senior communications professionals in roles with many of the world’s leading companies in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific and Australasia.

Founded in 1982 by Annita Bennett and Airdre Taylor, Taylor Bennett has always striven to provide the highest quality of executive search in the specialist communications field. Over the last 34 years the company has filled more than 1,200 roles in PR and communications. Dr Heather McGregor, the company’s majority shareholder and managing director, joined Taylor Bennett in 2000 and bought the company in 2004. Taylor Bennett remains committed to its founders’ vision of a company based on integrity, respect and partnership; one which adds value and makes a difference to our candidates and clients.
Heyman Associates was founded by William C. Heyman in New York in 1989. With more than two decades of disciplined work in communications search across industries and geographies, it has earned the trust of both clients and candidates. This trust, in turn, has given it the chance to become a thought leader in the industry, to build on its strong reputation and, most of all, to continue to do great work.
