Executive Counsel Limited was founded in 2003 by communications strategist Timothy J. Peirson-Smith, current Chairman of the Business Policy Unit of the British Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong.[1] Prior to 2003, Peirson-Smith was involved in the communications and environmental aspects of many major development projects, including Hong Kong International Airport and Hong Kong Disneyland.[2]

Executive Counsel's blue bowler hat logo is inspired by Edward de Bono's Six Thinking Hats and works by Belgian surrealist René Magritte, particularly The Man in the Bowler Hat and The Son of Man (both 1964).

Focus and Issues

Through executing many assignments, Executive Counsel Limited has supported clients from a broad range of sectors, including tourism, accountancy, banking and finance, investment promotion, recruitment, transportation, logistics, IT, environment, healthcare, property, energy and the public sector.[3] In Hong Kong, Executive Counsel Limited has become known for its special focus and expertise in infrastructure, construction and development, with Managing Director Timothy J. Peirson-Smith a regular commentator on these sectors in local media and the conference circuit.[4][5][6]
