WE Communications expands corporate and investor team

WE Communications has made five new hires within its Australian corporate and investor communications team, off the back of continued growth despite the global pandemic.

The new appointments are headlined by Hannah Howlett who joins as director of investor relations and brings ten years of industry experience in investor relations, corporate broking, and equity capital markets.

Howlett was most recently at Media & Capital Partners where she led communications and investor relations strategies for ASX-listed technology and engineering companies. She also spent time in the UK working with firms including WH Ireland and CLSA London.

She’ll now lead a 10-person team and portfolio of over 30 companies, as well as providing senior counsel to ASX-listed companies and build the WE Communications’ Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) service offering.
