Joining the Hong Kong Tourism Board’s central London office, she will plan and manage the overall PR for the region, working closely with the head office PR team in Hong Kong and the London-based marketing department.

She will report to Dawn Page, director, UK and Northern Europe, at the Hong Kong Tourism Board.

Sahota has spent six years working in PR agencies, which specialised in various different sectors of PR, including food, wellbeing and UK travel. Client experience includes Go Ape, Explore Pasta, Breakfast Week, Open Farm Sunday and National Bread Week in Ireland.

In her new role at the Hong Kong Tourism Board, Ramandeep will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the press office, and provide support to Barnett on overall PR strategy.
