Sling & Stone, the global agency for tech challengers, has won three new APAC-wide clients, and ramped up its teams in Australia and Singapore.
AI solution Dataiku, modern HR platform HiBob, and sustainability management solution FiscalNote ESG Solutions have selected Sling & Stone to handle communications strategy and execution across Asia Pacific.
Dataiku is on a mission to make artificial intelligence (AI) as ubiquitous and easy for companies to tap into as Wi-Fi. With one central platform to design, deploy, govern and manage AI and analytics, Dataiku is making “everyday AI” possible for companies to drive better decision making and business value. Sling & Stone is managing Dataiku’s communications strategy and execution across APAC, joining fellow VCCP Business agency Method Communications, which recently became agency of record for Dataiku in the United States.
HiBob is the HR platform designed for modern businesses, built for the way people work today: globally, remotely, and collaboratively. ‘Bob’ is the platform of choice for more than 2300 modern, midsize, and multinational companies like Fiverr and VaynerMedia, helping HR and managers connect, engage, develop and retain top talent. As the company expands into Australia and Singapore, Sling & Stone is managing communications and content work to embed the company into the Australian and Singaporean workplace.
FiscalNote ESG Solutions, is the next-generation carbon and ESG management platform that turns insights into action. As companies of all sizes become used to reporting on their carbon footprint and sustainability initiatives, FiscalNote’s all-in-one solution combines the tools — from carbon accounting to ESG reporting, management, and decarbonisation — into one central platform.
James Hutchinson, Global Head of Business, Sling & Stone:
“These three businesses are at the cutting edge of massive changes happening across society — Dataiku in the rapid spread of usable artificial intelligence, Hibob in the upheaval happening in the way we work, and FiscalNote in how corporations address, report and act on climate change. Helping tell their story, and the stories of the companies they work with, across APAC is an exciting opportunity.
“After the launch of our Singapore office last year, we have seen tremendous growth and opportunity to bring global stories to the region, and tell local stories on the world stage. There is a massive appetite for challengers, disrupters and innovators to tell their stories, and we’re growing our team on the ground in Singapore and across the region to help meet that challenge.”
In six short months we’ve doubled the size of our Singapore team welcoming Anmol Khan Rai as Senior Account Executive, previously at Redhill, and Althea Rei Del Rosario as Account Manager who joins from CROWD. And we’re not slowing down; currently we’re actively looking for an Account Director to join our fast growing Singapore team.
Sling & Stone has grown rapidly in recent years to have 75 people across offices and hubs in Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore, servicing global and regional clients. The multi-award winning agency was last month named PRWeek 2022 Best Culture in Asia.
