Managing Director, Dominique Backhouse

COMPANION offers a senior-led approach to communications for travel, dining and property brands in Asia. We employ no junior staff.

Dominique is the Managing Director of COMPANION and leads a team of senior communication consultants in Asia.

Dominique opened COMPANION in 2019 to fill a gap for a senior-led and strategic approach to communications in Asia. COMPANION specialises and supports travel, dining and property industries in the region.

Today COMPANION has two offices in Hong Kong and Singapore, and teams across Strategic Lifestyle Public Relations, Corporate Communications, Content and Social Media.

COMPANION is a leader in the region, working with clients as far ranging as Hongkong Land, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, Barratt London, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts and Shangri-La Group and many more.

Beyond the big names, COMPANION prides itself on its work with small independent brands - helping them strategize their positioning and creating authentic storytelling and relationship building for each. These include such Asian-based cultural leaders as Lorenzo Antinori at Bar Leone, Nana Chan at Plantation Tea Bar, Mandala Group in Singapore, Chef Shane Osborn at Arcane and many more. 

Prior to opening COMPANION, Dominique managed the Asia-Pacific and Greater China PR strategy for hotel brand COMO Hotels and Resorts and wellness brand COMO Shambhala. Before her time inhouse, Dominique spent over a decade agency-side in Asia where she led regional strategies for Belmond, Oetker Collection, Qantas, One&Only Resorts, Leading Hotels of the World, CE LA VI, Champagne Barons de Rothschild, Longines Horse Masters and many more.

In 2023, Dominique was named 40 Under 40 by Campaign Asia-Pacific, an award that showcases innovation, grit and boundary-pushing brilliance in the region.
