Cassius joined Colliers International in June 2016 as Executive Director and Head, Marketing and Communications, Asia. He will develop our strategic communications agenda and lead our regional and local teams to create an agile, client–oriented and outcome–focused marketing and communications platform for Colliers International in Asia.

He is an accomplished communications professional with over 16 years’ experience in corporate communications and product marketing. In 2010 Cassius established Giant Communications for Asia, US and European clients in the real estate and design sectors, consulting to public companies, professional services firms, government and not-for-profit organisations. Prior to Giant, Cassius held senior marketing roles in the architectural industry and with a major property marketing agency.

Cassius’ specialisms include directing corporate brand strategy and development, public relations, stakeholder and internal communications, hands-on management of integrated B-B and B-C marketing campaigns for product and service launch and repositioning.


Cassius has dedicated significant time to pro bono causes and public arts initiatives. As co-founder of Very Hong Kong Foundation from 2012-14, he established the city’s first multi-site community arts festival in December 2013. He has also been responsible for the concept, curation and delivery of Hong Kong’s most extensive public art project, Event Horizon Hong Kong, with Turner Prize-winning UK artist Sir Antony Gormley and presenters British Council Hong Kong.

Both initiatives successfully established new precedents for public arts, renewed use of public space in the city, partnership between private, civic and public interests, and the creative identity of Hong Kong.
