Dreamworld appoints new head of PR and internal communications

Six months after the Thunder River Rapids ride tragedy leisure brand Dreamworld has appointed Stacey Grims as its new head of PR and internal communications.

Grims previously worked at Wyndham Hotel Group in Queensland for one year and four months as its senior public relations manager.

Grims started the role earlier this month

Prior to this, she was the PR and communications officer for almost six years at Wyndham Vacation Resorts APAC.

Initially starting her career as a journalist for the Port Stephens Examiner in 2003, she then made the switch to PR as Netball Queensland’s media relations manager in 2007.

The new appointment will see Grims oversee the PR and communications department for Dreamworld, White Water World and SkyPoint.

Dreamworld made the appointment two months after advertising for the role listing the key duties as “ongoing delivery of key messaging across media channels and with influencers for the division with a focus on pro-active activity, but supportive of reactive opportunities that come to the business”.

The ad for the PR role was published four months after the Dreamworld tragedy which left four people dead in an accident on the Thunder Rapids ride.
