The International business of Federated Hermes has announced that Johnny Weir has been appointed as Head of Corporate Communications, with immediate effect.

Weir has been performing the role on an interim basis since last October, advising the firm on its media engagement across Europe and Asia as well as developing its internal communications capabilities. This will continue be a central part of his role for the firm which has been a pioneer in ESG investing and stewardship over several decades.

He spent the last twelve years at Deutsche Bank, the last three of which as Global Head of Communications for its asset management division, DWS. He was also Head of Group Internal Communications for Deutsche Bank and Co-Head of Communications & Marketing for its investment bank. Prior to Deutsche Bank he was Head of Corporate PR for Reuters plc.

Harriet Steel, Head of Business Development at the International business of Federated Hermes, said, “Federated Hermes has built its reputation as an early adopter of ESG integration and stewardship while also being a strong and public advocate for a more responsible investment approach by the industry. We will continue to push strongly for this while continuing to develop and grow our excellent product suite. In Johnny we have a highly accomplished communications executive whose breadth of experience will be a major asset as we advance both our advocacy and commercial agendas.”
