The appointment reunites two former Reuters colleagues who have worked together extensively on news coverage in the past – including covering some of the world's biggest stories in the 1990s.

Rake’s appointment comes at a time of significant expansion for Quantum Publicity – which has taken on several new PR clients in the last months including mobile phone operator Beeline, the world’s fourth largest motorbike manufacturer Pulsar and Cambodia’s largest business association, the International Business Chamber (IBC).

The company has also expanded the services it offers in to the realm of media training and consultation for major Asian TV channels – adding Vietnamese Television (VTV) and Chinese Central Television (CCTV) to its client list.

“Julian’s arrival after a distinguished 25 year career at Reuters is a mark of our ambition to expand our business in Cambodia and across Asia and a sign of our focus on quality and experience in the services we offer our clients,” said Felgate, who founded Quantum Publicity two years ago after leaving his job as MD at CTN, Cambodia’s number one TV station, which he launched in 2003.

Quantum Publicity has established itself as Cambodia’s leading PR agency in its two-year existence – with an impressive client list including Prudential, Unilever and local companies such as Ezecom.

Quantum Publicity also has a media production unit producing popular English and Khmer-language programs for Cambodian broadcasters.

“The variety and quality of Quantum’s work is a very attractive proposition in a young and vibrant market like Cambodia. I am looking forward to helping drive the business in what is becoming one of the region's fastest growing markets,” said Rake.

Rake is about to embark on a two-month long consultancy for CCTV Newscontent in Beijing where he will work with senior editorial managers to enhance the capabilities and output of its news production team.
