Chief Operating Officer
John’s experience in corporate and government communications is not matched by many. He has advised CEOs and Boards as a consultant, run Corporate Affairs for a global company, managed major advertising and communications campaigns and been chief of staff to a senior Government Minister. He has an intimate working knowledge of internal and external communications together with the legislative process and the machinations of Government. As a communications and political strategist, his abilities are well recognised.
Roles in consulting and corporate affairs with major government and corporate clients give him a broad understanding of the operations and interrelationships of communications at all levels. Over the last few years John has advised the Managing Director of a multinational IT company on government and communications issues, provided strategic counsel to major waste and recycling companies, provided litigation support to a number of law firms, and even bought a major food company’s IP back off a squatter in China.
Crisis management and the strategic positioning of organisations, their brands and their key messages are John’s forte. His contacts in the media, corporate and political arena are enviable.
John holds a Bachelor of Economics from Monash University and is an avid Carlton supporter, but please don’t hold that against him.
