Casey Van Liessum
“The thing I’ve enjoyed most throughout my career in the financial services industry is the pace – it’s ever-changing, it’s dynamic and it’s challenging. The environment constantly demands agility and quick response, and from a communications perspective, that’s exciting”.
Casey has over 12 years experience in providing strategic external and internal communications advice in Australia and the UK. She has counselled senior executives at large, complex organisations such as the Commonwealth Bank, Colonial First State and PWC. Her communications projects have spanned media and stakeholder relations, leadership and business profiling, PR events and social media engagement.
Proactive and innovative, her initiatives have led to a sustained increase in positive media coverage for her clients, as measured over rolling periods. A career highlight is managing the high-profile media launch of the Generation Sustainability Fund with former US Vice President Al Gore and the CEO of Colonial First State. Casey holds a Bachelor of Arts (Media Relations) and Master of Arts (Professional Communication).
