CHANGE OF PACE: Longtime Tiffany & Co. public relations executive, Carson Glover, has moved east. Far East, that is.
Glover has relocated to Hong Kong, where he has been anointed global director of communications for the Peninsula Hotels. He began his new role on Feb. 27.
Glover had spent nine years at Tiffany — most recently as senior/group director, global public relations and communications.
Among his many objectives for the Peninsula, Glover plans to take his 15 years of luxury and jewelry experience — honed at Harry Winston and Tiffany — to help raise the profile of the Peninsula Arcade shops.
“It has been an incredible honor to be a part of the jewelry industry for the past 15 years. From my days at the Diamond Information Center at JWT working on behalf of DeBeers, then Harry Winston and most recently Tiffany & Co., I have found this category to be an incredibly rich experience, and one that has prepared me to take on my new role with the Peninsula Hotels,” Glover said.
“I am looking forward to exploring a different facet of the luxury space and creating new ways to reveal the emotional purpose of this revered and storied hospitality brand.”
Glover will report to newly instated vice president of marketing Mark Kobayashi, who presently serves as the Peninsula’s director of marketing in Japan.
Kobayashi, too, plans to relocate to Hong Kong and is set to begin his new role on March 27.
